About the Fund

Named in honor and in memory of former Vice President for Student Affairs, William L. “Bud” Thomas, this fund provides annual support for the ODK speaker series. The ODK Speaker Series brings high caliber national and world leaders to the University for the benefit of the entire campus community. Through your support of the Thomas Lecture Fund, we are able to bring speakers to campus who have achieved distinction in their field of expertise, or who have rendered unusually significant service through their leadership in significant causes.

Omicron Delta Kappa – Sigma Circle is the University of Maryland’s chapter of the national leadership honor society for college students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni that recognizes and encourages scholarship, leadership, and exemplary character.
