The College Panhellenic Council is an umbrella organization to promote mutual collaboration among individual chapters of the Greek system and to positively benefit the UA Little Rock community as a whole. Specifically, the Panhellenic Council oversees the two National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus, Chi Omega and Kappa Delta, and strives to promote cooperation and harmony between members of these organizations internally and with members of other campus organizations as well to develop the best possible image for the Greek community.
The Panhellenic Council itself is composed of an executive board of six members with representation from both Chi Omega and Kappa Delta. This executive board consults the National Panhellenic Conference as a resource to act in accordance with the best interests of the UA Little Rock Panhellenic community.
The College Panhellenic Council promotes Sorority life by encouraging leadership, high academic achievement, philanthropic and community service efforts, as well as lasting bonds of sisterhood. This council also serves as a forum for discussing issues facing collegiate women and the entire sorority community and promotes equality among membership.
Membership within the Panhellenic Council offers incredible advantages including not only opportunities in networking, leadership and academics; but also, friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. Panhellenic recruitment is such an exciting opportunity for women interested in joining a sorority to learn about the meaning and benefits of sorority life. Formal Sorority Recruitment, sponsored by the Panhellenic Council in the fall each year, is organized, coordinated, and managed by the Recruitment Committee, consisting of the executive board and a representative from each sorority. This lasts for a full week and involves getting to know each organization and its members, philanthropies, and individual community.
