This fall, the UNT Panhellenic Association received the 2016-2017 College Panhellenic Achievement Award from the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) for excellence and achievement in their work to advance the sorority experience. UNT was one of 42 colleges across the U.S. to be recognized by NPC.
NPC has recognized student-managed College Panhellenic Associations with awards for more than 50 years and has used the excellence and achievement structure since 2013. With organizations located at more than 670 U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities, only the top-scoring groups receive this honor. This award recognizes the College Panhellenics that demonstrate success in five or six of the following areas: recruitment, Panhellenic structure, communication with your NPC area advisor, judicial procedures, Panhellenic programming, academics, and Panhellenic community impact and relations. We are proud of all of the achievements that the Panhellenic community has made.
“NPC is proud of all our College Panhellenics receiving recognition and I congratulate them all on their successes,” said Frances Mitchelson, Panhellenics chairman. “These College Panhellenics have excelled in all areas of Panhellenic operations and met the core competencies of reporting and communication.”
NPC, one of the largest organizations advocating for women, is the umbrella group for 26 national and international sororities. NPC sororities are located on more than 670 campuses with 380,565 undergraduate members in 3,234 chapters. Alumnae are represented in 3,889 associations throughout the world. There are currently eight NPC chapters at UNT with eight elected students on the executive board of the UNT Panhellenic Association.
