The Role of Panhellenic

     The Miami University Panhellenic Association is the coordinating body for activities that promote the common interests of all sororities on Miami's campus.  

 

     It embraces each of the Five Pillars it stands for; scholarship, philanthropy, leadership, community, and sisterhood. Each school year, sorority women participate in programming events that aid in the development of each of these values.  The programs for members range from health issue to sorority sports, educational programs to community service activities.  

 

     The Panhellenic Association also sponsors and coordinates Miami's Sorority Recruitment program, and is the unifying, governing, and coordinating body of the sorority community. 

 

Executive Board Elections

     At Miami University, the Panhellenic Executive Board is elected each fall to serve during the upcoming calendar year.

 

     The Panhellenic Executive Board is comprised of 8 women elected by the delegates of the 18 member chapters. Elections are held each Fall semester.  The Executive Board's term lasts one calendar year, from Bid Day in January until the following year. 

     Active sorority women from any PA chapter, including associate member chapters, complete a written application, which is reviewed by the current Panhellenic Executive Board, chapter presidents and Panhellenic delegates. They select a group of women to be interviewed by the current position holder and presidents/delegates from various chapters. The top candidates are then invited to give a speech to and take questions from all delegates and presidents. Finally, the delegates and presidents analyze the slate of candidates, and the delegates vote on the next Panhellenic Executive Board in the slating order outlined in our Panhellenic Constitution and Bylaws.

 

     Each Panhellenic chapter may only be represented once on the Panhellenic Executive Board. This means once a woman is chosen to serve in a particular position, no one else from her chapter may be chosen further down the slate.
