Welcome to the Tenacious Thirteenth District of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc. The District is comprised of Brothers who
serve Omega around the world and whose Chapters are located outside the continental United States. The District spans the
globe and maintains a presence in 16 countries, on 5 continents, across 19 time zones. There are 19 Chapters within the
District and we maintain an international presence in Bermuda, Canada, China, Germany, Ghana, Hawaii, Italy, Japan, Korea,
Mexico, Panama, The Bahamas, The Netherlands, St. Croix VI, St. Thomas VI, St. Maarten, the United Arab Emirates and the United
Kingdom. Brothers across the world who are not affiliated with a local Chapter or District are encouraged to join the 13th
District and reaffirm their commitment to Omega. This site is designed to retain and reclaim membership and provides
Brothers with an opportunity to enjoy the privileges of full or affiliate membership in Chapters within the District.

Long before Omega arrived in Shanghai, Shanghai found Omega!
In 1953, Brother Norman Yu, a native of Shanghai, China, was initiated into Omega Psi Phi Fraternity through Nu Chapter while he was enrolled at Penn State. He lived nine years in his homeland, receiving four years of grade (public) school education while there. In 1941, prior to Pearl Harbor, his family came to the United States for a one-year stay that turned into twelve years.
“I admire and respect the ideals and standards in which Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded and hope that I may do my part, now and in the future, in upholding its principles and aspirations.” — Norman Yu
Message from the Tenth 13th District Representative
Brother Trevor V. Hodge EdD
It is with a sobering sense of humility that I accept the privilege of serving this great District for a second term. My commitment to the greatest Fraternity known to man – the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc – is a rare and precious opportunity to make a positive difference as I lead the Brothers of the 13th International District. The work that Chapters of the 13th continue to engage in across the world has legitimized the claim that we are the District that makes Omega truly international.
Over the past 12 months, the 13th International District has made tremendous strides as we continue to keep the flame of Omega burning brightly around the world. We are unique in many ways, but the two most poignant things that defines the 13th are its resilience and ability to function in a multi-national, transient environment. We will continue to be challenged by many obstacles and for a comparatively small District, we will persevere and innovatively recreate ourselves to remain relevant around the world.
A key area of focus has been international growth. As a result, we saw the historic chartering of Chi Mu Nu Chapter in Shanghai, China in December 2018, Beta Nu Nu Chapter in Tijuana, Mexico in June 2019 and most recently, Delta Nu Nu Chapter in the United Arab Emirates. In the spirit of global expansion, we are investigating the viability of expanding Omega’s reach in new and culturally diverse locations where our Brothers are currently domiciled.
We continue to take the lead on humanitarian projects around the world. Whether it is supporting hurricane victims in the Caribbean, contributing to battered women's shelters in the United Kingdom, working with cancer orphanages in China, our rich mentoring programs across the world or sponsoring the commissioning of a number of boreholes (water wells) in rural villages where sanitary, portable water is deemed to be the prime cause of high infant mortality in Africa, the District remains steadfast to the call to service.
Thank you for visiting our website and taking a moment to learn of our rich and emerging legacy.
With every good wish,
