Panhellenic Mission Statement

"We the women of SMU Panhellenic will strive in all that we do to create a healthy and supportive Panhellenic community. As a community, it is our goal to promote fine standards, strong scholarship, ethical ideals and values, and the highest standards of womanhood. It is our aspiration to lead with courage and integrity as we work to positively impact and unite our chapters, our Panhellenic council, our campus and our local communities, and beyond, for today and for the future."

The SMU Panhellenic Council

The SMU Panhellenic Council exists as the governing body over the eight National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities located on our campus. The Council is comprised of nine executive officers and eight chapter delegates and junior delegates. It is the responsibility of the Council to unite all eight chapters in the spirit of Greek unity, to enforce the NPC guidelines, and to oversee and regulate the recruitment process. The Council works year around to promote positive ideals of sorority life at SMU, and contribute to the SMU community through involvement, leadership, academic, philanthropic projects, school spirit, and overall support.

Sororities were among the first organizations at SMU founded during 1915, with Alpha Omicron Pi, Phi Mu, and Alpha Delta Pi being the first three chapters to colonize. The growth of the SMU Panhellenic Council was prolific during the twenties and thirties, and over time SMU has hosted 15 different NPC chapters.

SMU Panhellenic Council Strives for excellence in: harmony, loyalty, accountability, pride, integrity, compassion, innovation, scholarship, service, high standards, and respect.

A list of current and former chapters and their conduct status is available here.

Southern Methodist University has a long and rich relationship with inter/national fraternities and sororities. The first inter/national fraternities and sororities joined the SMU campus in 1915. SMU presently recognizes campus chapters of eleven (11) Interfraternity Council fraternities, five (5) Multicultural Greek Council groups, seven (7) National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations, and eight (8) Panhellenic Council sororities. These chapters and their inter/national organizations are governed by one of these four governing councils chartered by the University.
