Panhellenic Delegates

A delegate's role is...

The Panhellenic delegates serve as the primary liaison between our chapters and the Panhellenic Executive Board, providing insight and feedback to help better the Panhellenic Association at Miami University. Delegates represent their chapters by attending weekly council meetings, serving on various committees and voting on anything related to the Panhellenic community as a whole, from voting on the yearly budget to selecting each year's Panhellenic executive board.

How are the delegates involved in Panhellenic elections? 

At Miami University, the Panhellenic executive board is elected each fall to serve during the upcoming calendar 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.

Why I Joined a Sorority: "I joined a sorority in order to make more friends my freshman year and to become more involved on Miami's campus.

Joining a sorority helped me find my community at Miami, and I truthfully could not imagine my collegiate experience without being a part of it."

Why I Joined a Sorority: "I did not want to be in a sorority, but one of my friends from a club we were in told me that she was a sorority that wasn’t like the others. I went to a recruitment event and we were tote bag painting! It was so much fun and I got to meet some of the girls that were in it. I decided that I liked the sorority because we do crafts, watch movies, and go out to dinner together. We support each other through hard times and are willing to go the extra step to make sure we are enjoying our time at college."
