Omicron Kappa Upsilon, Omega Chapter

The New York University College of Dentistry Chapter, Omega, was founded by charter on June 6, 1929, and is one of 77 active chapters - including the US, Canada and other countries.

Admission to the Omega Chapter is based on scholarship and character and is determined by annual election by active members. Alumni Members (associate members) are selected from the top 20% of the graduating class, as reported to the chapter annually by the Dean of Academic Affairs. From this listing, not more than 12% may be elected each year.

Faculty Members (active) are selected from the dental school faculty and are those who have been teaching full time for three years or part time for six years. These faculty members must have made outstanding contribution to the art, science, or literature of dentistry.

Lifetime Memberships may be granted to active (faculty) members who have been members for 30 years and who have reached the age of 60. Lifetime members are exempt from dues and retain all of the privileges of active members while they remain on the dental school faculty. Associate Members (non-faculty alumni) are eligible for life members ship after 40 years of membership in good standing.

Omega Chapter is interested in the accomplishments and activities of our members. Please let the secretary know of your newsworthy activities, appointments, awards, etc. Also advise the secretary if you are planning an address change so that we can keep our roster current and you can continue to receive our mailings, check the members section and if you see any errors or omissions inform the secretary so that our records can be updated.
