Kappa Omicron Nu Honor Society

Who We Are

Kappa Omicron Nu is the leading honor society for students in the human sciences. It was established on February 21, 1990 by the consolidation of Kappa Omicron Phi and Omicron Nu. Kappa Omicron Nu chapters are located in colleges and universities that offer a strong human sciences program.

Chapter members are undergraduate and graduate students who major in one of the specializations and meet the high standards of scholarship. The professional category of membership includes alumni of college chapters and faculty and others not previously initiated into Kappa Omicron Nu or its predecessor societies. Candidates must have earned one or more degrees in the human sciences or are working in the field and have the minimum class rank as a student.

Our Mission

The mission of Kappa Omicron Nu is empowered leaders who use an integrative approach to enhance quality of living through excellence in scholarship, leadership, and research. Kappa Omicron Nu values recognition, reward, advancement, and strong affiliation networks. These ends enhance the ability of the organization and chapters to prepare scholars and researchers as leaders for the 21st century.
