‚ÄčOmicron Delta Epsilon

Omicron Delta Epsilon, the International Honor Society in Economics, charters a chapter at Providence College. Those students who maintain honors work in economics are eligible to join.  A banquet for inductees and their families is held each year.

Omicron Delta Epsilon is one of the world's largest academic honor societies. The objectives of Omicron Delta Epsilon are recognition of scholastic attainment and the honoring of outstanding achievements in economics; the establishment of closer ties between students and faculty in economics within colleges and universities, and among colleges and universities; the publication of its official journal, The American Economist, and sponsoring of panels at professional meetings.

Currently, Omicron Delta Epsilon has 678 chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Egypt, France, Kazakhstan, and United Arab Emirates. With such a broad, international base, chapter activities vary widely, ranging from invited speakers, group discussions, dinners, and meetings to special projects, such as review sessions and tutoring for students in economics.
