The University of Tampa College Panhellenic Association was one of 19 universities nationwide to be recognized for its achievement in advancing UT’s sorority experience by the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC).
The College Panhellenic Achievement Award only recognizes College Panhellenics that meet the criteria for at least five of the following areas: academics, communication with NPC area advisor, community impact and relations, judicial procedures, programming, recruitment and programming.
There are more than 670 College Panhellenic Associations across the country. This is the second time in a row UT has received this recognition. Other universities that were recognized for achievement included University of Central Florida, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Washington State University and Valparaiso University.
Linda Henderson, NPC Panhellenic chairman, said the recognized schools, including UT, “have demonstrated a commitment to upholding high standards for their College Panhellenic as well as ensuring the sorority experience is beneficial to all members on their campus.”
NPC, one of the largest advocacy and support organizations 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 (inter)national women’s sororities, with eight 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.
