Delta Omega | Pi Chapter Membership (Founded in 1985)

Look for student, faculty and alumni members of the Pi Chapter and other chapters nationwide in the Delta Omega National Membership List.

National Induction Guidelines

Students: Chapters may induct up to 20 percent of the graduating student body. All student inductees are often in the upper 25 percent in class standing and must have demonstrated real or potential qualities of leadership in public health.

Faculty: Chapters may induct 3 percent of the full-time faculty. Adjunct faculty may not be appointed as faculty members. Faculty will be selected based on outstanding public health performance in scholarship, teaching, research, and the quality of publications.

Alumni: Chapters may induct no more than half the number of allowed student inductions. Alumni inductees’ work in the practice of public health should serve as a model for future graduates of the school.

Honorary: The first year that a chapter is active it may induct three honorary members. However, every year after the chapter may induct one honorary member. Honorary membership should only be conferred upon persons possessing exceptional qualifications and those who have attained meritorious distinction in the field of public health.
