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.
