College Panhellenic Associations are to be established on campuses where there are at least two NPC member group chapters. CPH’s exist to develop and maintain fraternity life and interfraternal relations. The CPH is the coordinating body for recruitment.
If a woman is a member of a chapter on a campus with a CPH, then she is automatically a member of that CPH. This means that the CPH’s often represent the single largest women’s organization on most campuses. Each chapter has a designated person that attends Panhellenic Council meetings. Additionally, presidency of Panhellenic works on a rotational basis determined by the date each chapter was founded on our campus.
Columbia Panhell’s largest event is spring Formal Recruitment. Aside from Recruitment, Panhellenic plans council-wide sisterhood and philanthropy events that seek to foster Panhellenic spirit. In the past, these events have included bake sales, fitness classes, and food drives.
In addition to running recruitment, Panhellenic exists as one of the three sub-councils that constitute the InterGreek Council, a governing board. The IGC creates programming for the entire Greek community that benefits members and the Columbia community as a whole. Events in include Inter-Greek formal, Relay for Life, and university events like activities fairs, etc.
