Panhellenic Mission, Vision, and Values

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) was established in 1902 to promote values and ethics in women's sororities and to encourage their members to be active and responsible leaders in their respective communities. The NPC is composed of 26 women’s-only inter/national member organizations, and is the world's largest umbrella organization, created to advocate for the sorority experience. We pride ourselves on being values-based organizations, and assist all 13 Panhellenic sorority chapters at the University of Arizona live their missions.

Panhellenic Creed

"We, as Undergraduate Members of women's fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.

We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live."
