NPC Task Forces Regarding Panhellenic Operations 

The NPC Board of Directors appointed a Disruption to Panhellenic Operations Task Force to study and make recommendations by March 31 regarding College Panhellenic operations, particularly if campus disruptions continue into the fall. NPC continues to act on the recommendations in the report.

The board also appointed the Recruitment Contingencies Task Force to develop a road map for College Panhellenics to follow as they prepare for the fall 2020 academic term and Panhellenic recruitment. The various alternative recruitment models put forth by the task force will assist our communities to continue to engage potential new members in the sorority experience, regardless of the environment on campus. From May through mid-August, College Panhellenics received regular communications from the task force. NPC also continued to share additional guidance about virtual recruitment and operations during August and September. All of those messages and related resources can be found on the COVID-19 Resources for College Panhellenics page.
