We strive to uphold our four Cardinal Principles—Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift. Throughout out the year we implement a long list of initiatives that are designed to have a positive impact on the lives of others. Our programmatic agenda is guided by our fraternity’s Internationally Mandated Programs and customized by the needs of the community.

In collaboration with the Iota Phi Foundation, our primary programs and initiatives include the Omega Carter G. Woodson Academy, the Mardi Gras celebration, the Sylvester Pace Historically Black College Tour, the Talent Hunt program, the Ron Foster Memorial Golf Tournament, the Omega Labor Day Weekend, the Achievement Dinner, the Thanksgiving Food Giveaway, the Children’s Christmas Party, and the Charles R.

In an effort to improve our online presence, we have recently reconfigured our website and we will continue to make improvements over the next several weeks. In addition, we have created a dynamic Facebook Page to improve our communication with members and non-members.
