The Leadership Institute is a seven week program that is designed to assist students with becoming more effective leaders in organizations on campus and in the classroom.  The Leadership Institute also develops students’ personal growth and development through active participation in discussion, exercises, and workshops. We are no longer accepting applications for this year’s Institute. 

Women’s Leadership Seminar
This year we are celebrating our 15th annual Women’s Leadership Seminar.  Women student leaders on campus are nominated by faculty and staff to attend this prestigious afternoon seminar. This year’s seminar is planned for Spring 2014. Following the seminar all members of the Merrimack College Community are invited to hear Piper Kerman, author of Orange is the New Black speak in the MPR at 7 p.m.

Here is a look back at past Women’s Leadership Seminars on campus.

Omicron Delta Kappa (Leadership Honor Society)
Omicron Delta Kappa is a prestigious organization on campus that is recognized nationally.   The Society recognizes achievement in the following five areas:

  • Scholarship

  • Athletics

  • Campus/ Community Service, Social/Religious Activities, and Campus Government

  • Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media

  • Creative and Performing Arts

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 DeltaKappa members, on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness.

Merrimack College juniors and seniors must be nominated and apply to be accepted in our ODK circle.
