Academic and student life resources for School of Public Health students
Apply for Delta Omega
SPH students may be recognized for their accomplishments by applying for entry into the Delta Omega Honorary Society. The Delta Omega Society is a national honorary public health fraternity established to recognize and encourage scholarship and research among those undertaking study in public health and to recognize excellence in the field of public health. Students, faculty, and alumni members are elected each year in April. Applications for the current cycle close March 1.
Eligibility for the 2020-2021 Academic Year
Student members are elected from summer 2020, fall 2020, and spring 2021 semester graduates of all SPH degree programs. Selection is not automatic. Graduating students who want to be considered for this honor must be ranked in the upper 25% of their graduating class (usually this translates to a GPA of 3.89 or higher) and should demonstrate qualities of leadership in public health in addition to academic excellence. The review committee will determine who is elected based on this criteria.
