In accordance with our International Headquarters every year we celebrate the Accomplishments and Achievements of the Chapter, the Brotherhood and the Fraternity.
ACHIEVEMENT WEEK - is observed each November and is designed to recognize those individuals at the local and international levels who have contributed to community uplift. A High School Essay Contest is to be held in conjunction with Achievement Week
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded on the campus of Howard University in the Science Hall by three undergraduate students and one University Professor. Dr. Ernest E. Just (1883-1941), Bishop Edgar A. Love (1891-1974), Dr. Oscar J. Cooper (1888-1972) and Professor Frank Coleman (1890-1967) had a vision of creating an organization and institution designed to Uplift humanity and Render Service to society through our Cardinal Principles of MANHOOD, SCHOLARSHIP, PERSEVERANCE AND UPLIFT!
During the celebration we reconnect with our Fraternity and the Brotherhood through specific activities designed to foster fellowship and unity. We also designate this time to recognize members of our Fraternity and the community by awarding Achievement week awards; Citizen of the Year, Superior Service Award, Founders Award and the Omega Man of the Year Award.
Even though most of the events and activities are geared towards the Brotherhood we believe that it is necessary to inform the public of our purpose, goals and the activities that help our communities. We are a service centered organization that is built of MEN, strong MEN who “stand on the shoulders of giants” with our eyes focused on the future and our place in it.
