The Panhellenic Council is the representative governing body of the five National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities at JCU; it consists of eight executive officers from various chapters and one voting delegate from each chapter. The Panhellenic Council meets weekly to discuss current issues and upcoming events. The council is also responsible for local Panhellenic operations in accordance with the NPC policies and procedures.
As the umbrella organization for all five sororities on campus, the Panhellenic Council is responsible for upholding the bylaws which are rules and regulations that all of the sororities must follow. Panhellenic associations are based on democratic principles and organized to afford cooperation among the women’s sororities.
All five of our sororities are members of the National Panhellenic Conference – the governing organization over all 26 inter/national sororities. All chapters involved in JCU’s College Panhellenic Association, regardless of their membership class, must be women’s-only organizations.
