The Omicron Delta Kappa Society is the national leadership honor society for college students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni that recognizes and encourages superior scholarship, leadership, and exemplary character.  Membership in ODK is a mark of the highest distinction and honor.  Emphasis is placed on the development of the whole person, both as a member of the college community and as a contributor to a better society.

On the JMU Campus, ODK is the student organization responsible for celebrating the spirit of all together one by preparing for and carrying out the yearly all together one community gathering.  This process includes searching for and selecting the all together one recognition recipients and presenting their stories to the campus community at the gathering.  It is an excellent process that connects ODK members to leaders all over campus and allows the rest of campus to celebrate the unifying idea of all together one.

Membership is accepted once each semester. Please note - membership in ODK requires a fee, but applying does not.
