Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) Leadership Society

Tennessee Tech is offering an exciting new opportunity for student leaders! Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), America’s oldest national leadership honor society for college leaders, is rebuilding a chapter at Tennessee Tech. Originally chartered in 1975, Tennessee Tech’s OΔK chapter has initiated hundreds of members who have graduated and enjoy successful careers. 

ODK is an organization that values leadership qualities found in a diverse array of fields. The organization seeks to recognize and bring together leaders of all five “pillars” or areas of campus life: scholarship, athletics, services, campus and community service, communications, and the arts. The organization is intentionally inter-generational in that we invite sophomores, juniors, and seniors who rise to the top 35% of their class (typically around a 3.40 cumulative GPA) and graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and civic leaders for membership.
