Panhellenic Council

The Panhellenic Council is the governing board for Colgate's three female Greek letter organizations: Delta Delta DeltaGamma Phi Beta, and Kappa Kappa Gamma.

The executive board is made up of representatives from all three sororities. Officers meet weekly to accomplish a number of goals, with a devotion to ensuring the well-being of all three chapters and to serving as a positive presence within the Colgate and Hamilton communities.

Colgate's Panhellenic Association mirrors the beliefs and values stated in the creed of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC):

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.
