Order of Omega was founded at the University of Miami in 1959 by a group who felt that individuals in the Greek community should be recognized for their service to the fraternity system and the university. The idea of an honorary for fraternity men at the University of Miami is attributed to Parker F. Enright, the advisor to fraternities at the time. Enright later accepted a position at the University of Pittsburgh, where he was responsible for the founding of the Omega chapter at the University of Pittsburgh in the spring of 1964.
The original constitution was approved by the organizations committee at the University of Miami on April 14, 1959, the recognized founding date. The first member class was initiated the following fall.
