The purpose of the Omicron Delta Kappa Society is threefold:
- first, to recognize those who have attained a high standard of efficiency in collegiate activities and to inspire others to strive for conspicuous attainments along similar lines;
- second, to bring together the most representative students in all phases of collegiate life and thus to create an organization which will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate interest;
- third, to bring together members of the faculty and student body of the institution, as well as other Omicron Delta Kappa members, on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness.
Omicron Delta Kappa will transform the lives and careers of UB scholars through the seamless intertwining of leadership and service.
Omicron Delta Kappa at UB will exemplify the values of leadership, service, and scholarship by connecting students to meaningful and rewarding experiences and developing lasting traditions.
