About Panhellenic Council
The Panhellenic Council at Michigan State University is the governing body of the 14 National Panhellenic Conference sororities on campus. The council is composed of 9 Executive Board members and a delegate representing each sorority. Panhellenic Executive Council members are elected by their peers to represent the Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL) to the university's administration, City of East Lansing, and students of Michigan State. The Council is comprised of current sorority members who have disaffiliated from their chapters during recruitment in order to provide unbiased planning and support for all involved in the process. The Panhellenic Council strengthens FSL and is responsible for promoting scholarship, philanthropy, and safety for each sorority as well as the FSL as a whole. The Panhellenic Council provides activities and programs throughout the year to address current issues affecting college women.
The Michigan State Panhellenic Association desires to build a community that reflects diversity and inclusion within our sorority chapters. We strive to make our campus stronger through our commitment to promoting diversity and creating positive change within FSL. Women of all backgrounds make up the Michigan State University Panhellenic Association and each individual is celebrated for her perspectives, ideas, and contributions to her organization and to our entire community.
Our values and ideals are best illustrated through our Panhellenic Creed:
We, the 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.
