In 1987, OFIC initiated the Evening of Excellence program to honor outstanding alumni of its member institutions. Some well-known inductees to the OFIC Hall of Excellence are Jack Hanna, Senator John H. Glenn, Coretta Scott King, and Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. 

Each year, OFIC member colleges are invited to nominate an alumna/alumnus to be considered for induction into The Hall of Excellence. Inductees are chosen by a committee of OFIC collegiate and corporate trustees based on the criteria of professional achievement; impact on society through service, leadership, scholarship, minority affairs, sciences, research, arts or elected office; and service to alma mater, all of which exemplify the value of a liberal arts education. 

Also awarded at The Evening of Excellence is the Earl F. Morris Trustee award, which recognizes exceptional trustees of OFIC member institutions; the OFIC Volunteer of the Year award; and the Student Service-Learning Leadership Award, which honors a student of one of OFIC's member institutions for exemplary community service.

The Inductees for the 2016 OFIC Hall of Excellence were:
