Meet the Executive Board

The Panhellenic Executive Board serves as the communication link between sororities, campus organizations, and community leaders. Through various programs, we seek to provide personal enrichment and knowledge to all Greek women.

The Panhellenic Association's influence is a crucial part of sorority life at Miami, one that promotes a stronger Fraternity and Sorority community overall.
