National Symposia


In 1983, in order to promote excellence, scholarship and visibility, OKU sponsored its first national symposium entitled “Human Values and Ethics Education in Dentistry.”  Due to the enthusiastic response, many symposia have been offered by the Supreme Chapter through the years.  The sponsorship by OKU of quality programs has become a tradition at the A.D.E.A Annual Sessions.  In 1998, the Supreme Chapter of  Omicron Kappa Upsilon partnered with its Dental Hygiene counterpart, Sigma Phi Alpha (SPA),  to present a highly successful joint symposium entitled "Intellectual Property and The Electronic Environment: Institutional, Faculty and Student Rights and Responsibilities." 

Through the years the following programs have been jointly sponsored by OKU and SPA-
