Order of Omega Case Study Competition

A BRIEF HISTORY:

The Order of Omega Case Study Competition has become one of the most popular and recognized programs sponsored by Order of Omega.  Its origin dates to December 3, 1994, when an Order of Omega Board of Directors meeting motion was approved to sponsor a case study competition at the annual NIC/AFA meeting.  After acceptance of the Order of Omega Board of Directors proposal by the AFA leadership, Order of Omega allocated $1,000 and the first Case Study Competition was held on November 30, 1995. 

 

From those humble beginnings, Order of Omega has expanded the program beyond the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors’ annual meeting to include the regional Fraternity and Sorority leadership conferences and many national organization conferences by special request.  Over the years, thousands of participants have made lasting connections through this immersive program.

WHAT IS THE CASE STUDY COMPETITION EXACTLY? 

The Order of Omega Case Study Competition is designed to provide an experiential learning opportunity where students and professionals use analytical thinking to evaluate and address real-life issues facing our fraternity & sorority communities today.  The competition allows participants to further strengthen skills such as creative problem-solving, public speaking, collaboration, and strategic planning.  Teams of two sign up for an opportunity to develop the most comprehensive plan to present to a panel of judges.

Tenets of the Case Study Competition program are to foster 3 key learning outcomes:

  • Think critically
    • Apply prior knowledge and critical thought in new contexts to solve problems; 
  • Work in teams
    • Effectively participate in diverse teams to contribute to shared goals; and
  • Communicate
    • Effectively communicate ideas to community, professional, and global audiences.
