Summary: Records of a leadership honor society on the University of Wisconsin--Eau Claire campus.
Originally founded in 1972 as the Alpha Lambda Omicron Society, the University of Wisconsin--Eau Claire Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society was chartered in 1974. The organization has several goals: to honor student achievement in academics and campus leadership, to encourage other students to strive for similar achievement, to bring faculty and students together, and to inform the opinions of the campus community on local and university issues. There are five criteria for membership: exemplary character, excellence in scholarship, leadership and service on campus or in the community, genuine fellowship, and dedication to democratic ideals.
The records include membership lists, group photographs, banners, correspondence, meeting minutes, reports, and documentation of local and national Omicron Delta Kappa activities. Early records include information about the transition of the organization from an all male to a co-educational organization.
