All students who join a Whitman College sorority immediately become members of the Whitman College Panhellenic Association. By uniting together under one organization, the sororities are able to create a climate of unity and support among the four groups. Through Panhellenic, the sorority women increase their resources and are able to focus on issues of mutual concern such as sexual violence prevention, party safety and diversity, equity and inclusion.
The Panhellenic Association is led by the Executive Officers, comprised of women elected from each of the four sororities. The Council meets weekly throughout the academic year to plan activities and conduct business that is of mutual concern to the sororities. Philanthropy projects, scholarship desserts, public speakers, educational lectures, social functions, Greekend and membership recruitment are just a few of the many activities that Panhellenic coordinates each year.
