Through discussions within our community, seminars from representatives on campus, our own internal education programs, and hosting external speakers, we as a Panhellenic community strive for the continued education of our members on a multitude of topics, including but not limited to: healthy body image, public perception of sorority women and Greek Life as a whole, and utilization of our Greek experience for self-betterment.
Our largest internal educational programming events are the Panhellenic Improvement and Education (PIE) Sessions which are organized by the Panhellenic Vice President of Educational Membership Development each semester. Every semester, all Panhellenic women are able to choose between a number of sessions that connect students to campus resources, staff and faculty, or external speakers to discuss various topics targeted at personal development. In Spring 2015, the topics of mental wellness and sexual assault and relationship violence (SARV) prevention were addressed by the PIE Sessions.
Membership development is important across the entire Greek Community. Additionally, the Panhellenic Council, in conjunction with the other Greek Councils on campus and the Student Life Office, have sponsored multiple events that offer open discussions and education about issues such as SARV, the role of race in Greek Life, and other topics relevant to Greek Life at a national level.
