UT Panhellenic Association Recognized for Innovation in Sorority System
The University of Tampa College Panhellenic Association was one of 26 collegiate panhellenic organizations honored last week with a National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) College Panhellenic Innovation Award.
Innovation Awards are granted to college panhellenic associations that demonstrate outstanding and unique contributions to an individual award category. UT’s association was recognized in the categories of community impact, judicial procedure, recruitment and marketing.
There are nearly 670 college panhellenic associations across the country. Other universities that were recognized in more than three innovation categories included University of Florida, Elon University, University of Washington and Penn State.
Linda Henderson, College Panhellenics Committee chairman, said the recognized schools, including UT, continued their focus on high achievement and community support despite the hardships presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
NPC, one of the largest organizations advocating for women, has recognized student-led college panhellenic associations with awards for more than 50 years.
UT’s College Panhellenic Association governs the NPC organizations recognized at UT. The NPC encompasses 26 national and international women’s sororities, with seven of those organizations currently active on UT’s campus. More than 1,000 UT women are members of an NPC sorority. The College Panhellenic Association strives to empower women through innovative programming and leadership opportunities.
