About Panhellenic Council
What is the National Panhellenic Conference
Since the early 1850s, fraternal organizations have afforded undergraduate women on American college campuses opportunities to engage with other women with like interests, improve their social skills and cultivate individual leadership abilities. To date, nearly 4 million women have been initiated into the 26 sororities that comprise the National Panhellenic Conference, the umbrella organization governing these national groups. A community of NPC sororities exists on more than 500 college campuses and governs nearly 3,000 undergraduate sorority chapters.
National Panhellenic Conference members are women’s fraternities, each of which is autonomous as a social, Greek-letter society of college women, undergraduates and alumnae. Marshall University’s Greek community includes five Greek-lettered sororities: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Zeta, and Sigma Sigma Sigma.
The National Panhellenic Conference is an organization designed to foster interfraternity relationships, assist collegiate chapters and cooperate with colleges and universities in maintaining the highest scholastic and social standards. The Marshall University Panhellenic Association stands behind the development of undergraduate students through membership in women’s fraternities. It promotes honesty, respect and sisterhood. As a whole, the undergraduate members of Marshall’s women’s fraternities stand for good scholarship, guarding of good health, maintenance of fine standards, and serving, to the best of their ability, the Marshall community.
The National Panhellenic Conference exists to promote the values of and to serve as an advocate for its member groups in collaboration with those members, campuses and communities.
We, as Undergraduate Members of women's fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.
We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live.
