Biographical / Historical

Panhellenic Council began at the University of Denver in 1917 after the previous greek organization governing body Greek Council split into IFC and Panhellenic. The first five member sororities were Pi Beta Phi, Delta Zeta, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Delta and Sigma Kappa. As of 2022, the DU Panhellenic Council consists of seven member sororities: Alpha Delta Chi, Alpha Phi, Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Delta Zeta and Gamma Phi Beta.

Panhellenic Councils generally exist on any college campus with two or more sororities. At DU, the mission statement of Panhellenic Council states their commitment to "excellence, personal growth, philanthropy, and supporting our community."

As on 2022, the National Panhellenic Conference is an umbrella organization for 26 international member women's sororites. The NPC was established in 1902 to assist collegiate and alumni chapters with university relationships and to foster interfraternal cooperation. The NPC enacts no legislation and only provides recommendations and advice to member sororities.
