ORDER OF OMEGA

THOMAS J. VUKOVICH

Award for Outstanding Leadership

Award Description

The Order of Omega - Thomas J. Vukovich Award for Outstanding Leadership was established in 1990 to recognize fraternity men and women for their achievements and contributions to The University of Akron's Greek community. This award was established first and foremost to recognize Greek achievement. Although other areas of campus and community involvement are considered in applicants, the primary considerations for recognition are chapter and community involvement.


The Thomas J. Vukovich Award will recognize no more than ten (10) juniors and/or seniors on an annual basis. Only those students who have made a significant positive impact on Greek Life will be considered for this award. The certificates will be presented each Spring semester at the annual Greek Leadership Awards.
Membership in Order of Omega is not a prerequisite for receiving this award.
This award was named after Dr. Thomas J. Vukovich for his leadership and contributions over many years to The University of Akron's Greek community. Dr. Vukovich, a member of Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity, served as the Interfraternity Council Advisor at UA from 1974 to 1978 and from 1980 to 1981. A graduate of the Interfraternity Institute, Dr. Vukovich was a charter member and founding advisor for the Alpha Omicron Chapter of the Order of Omega. He also served from 1983 to 1990 as the faculty advisor to the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity.
Dr. Thomas Vukovich retired in June 2000 as the Associate Provost, Student Affairs and Enrollment Services at The University of Akron.
Students who are nominated in this category are also strongly encouraged to submit nominations for the Greek Man/Woman of the Year Award, if they qualify.
