Delta Omega Honor Society


Overview

delta omegaFounded in 1924, Delta Omega is the honorary society for graduate studies in public health. It celebrates excellent academic achievement, devotion to public health principles and outstanding service in public health.

Since Delta Omega’s establishment in 1924, the meaning and scope of public health has broadened tremendously. While it is still seriously concerned with problems of environmental sanitation and communicable disease control, public health action has come to embrace all aspects of health and disease in populations. These include the planning, organization, and support of health promotion, disease prevention, and medical care. Basic to modern public health are the social sciences as well as the natural sciences–both in the United States and internationally.

The Graduate School of Public Health at SDSU maintains it’s own local Delta Omega chapter, which is one chapter in the larger National Delta Omega Organization.

Election of Members

The chapters elect new members each year from four groups:

  1. students who are candidates for a graduate degree in public health
  2. faculty members at the school of public health
  3. alumni actively engaged in public health work
  4. honorary members possessing exceptional qualifications

Election from all four groups is based on outstanding performance–scholarship in students, teaching and research in faculty members, and community service in alumni. Election to membership in Delta Omega is intended, not only to recognize merit, but also, to encourage further excellence in, and devotion to, public health work. Membership in Delta Omega reflects the dedication of an individual to quality in the field of public health and to protection and advancement of the health of all people.
