Basileus Dr. Carl E. Gilmore, Jr.

Greetings and welcome to the online hub of the Chi Tau Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity! I am Dr. Carl E. Gilmore Jr. Basileus of Chi Tau Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., and it brings me great pleasure to extend a heartfelt welcome to all to explore our virtual space..

Thank you for gracing our chapter website with your presence. As you navigate through our digital space, I want you to feel the warmth and energy that defines the spirit of Chi Tau. We're not just a fraternity; we're a legacy of strength, service, and brotherhood, standing as a pillar in underserved communities for over 60 years.

Chi Tau takes pride in being an integral part of Central Florida, actively engaging in initiatives that uplift and empower. From voter registration drives to our impactful youth mentoring programs, turkey and bicycle giveaways that spread joy, and our commitment to STEM education, we are agents of positive change in the heart of Orlando.

But our impact goes beyond events; it's about making a lasting difference. Through our programs, we extend a helping hand to talented young minds, providing financial assistance that opens doors to brighter futures. Each year, our fraternity allocates at least $20,000 to invest in the potential of the next generation.

In addition to our commitment to education and empowerment, Chi Tau takes a proactive stance on health initiatives. We coordinate various programs that promote good health practices, including the Charles Drew Blood Drive and our meaningful partnership with the American Diabetes Association.

So, why are we considered a pillar in the Orlando community? It's because Chi Tau is more than a name; it's a commitment etched in service and brotherhood. We are recognized for our unwavering dedication to community upliftment, youth development, and the overall well-being of those we serve.

As you explore our website, I invite you to discover the essence of Chi Tau—the perfect blend of warmth, masculinity, and a touch of the extraordinary. Thank you for joining us on this journey, and we look forward to sharing the impact, the legacy, and the brotherhood that make Chi Tau a beacon of excellence in Orlando.

Thank You,

Bro. Dr. Carl E. Gilmore Jr. 
Chi Tau Chapter Basileus

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.



The establishment of Chi Tau Chapter began in 1960 when Mr. Cecil Boston, the principal of Jones High School, invited Judge Lawson E. Thomas to be their commencement speaker for that year's graduating class. Mr. Boston invited a group of Omega Men to a reception for Bro. Thomas, and from this meeting brothers C.J. Manigault, William V. Nixon, Robert L. Howard, Willie B. Pete, Paul K. Tisdale, Ernest Niblack, Johnny L. Toney, Robert W. Hunt, Willie G. Holt, and G.H. Jones met at Murchison Terrace Housing Office for several months to organize and obtain a charter.  In March of 1961 at Shiloh Baptist Church, through the perseverance of these Omega Men, Chi Tau Chapter was founded. The chapter received its charter on January 8, 1962. Today there are over 130 active members in the chapter that have made and demonstrated a commitment to serve the communities within Orlando.
