As the premier advocacy and support organization for the sorority experience, the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is committed to working with our Panhellenic communities to lead the way for the type of necessary social change required to improve student safety. And, in light of changing campus climates across the United States and Canada, NPC believes sororities are at an existential juncture.
As a result, NPC issued a “Call for Critical Change” and took action by convening industry-leading professionals on Jan. 11, 2018, in Indianapolis.
Holiday (Holly) McKiernan, executive vice president, chief operating officer, and general counsel for Lumina Foundation and former executive director of Alpha Chi Omega, who facilitated the meeting said:
“Changing student cultures at this scale requires an unprecedented level of collaboration and cooperation between student leaders, university officials and fraternity and sorority advisors. And our ability to achieve such seamless cooperation will require an unprecedented level of candor and open discussion amongst our participants. The roots of these challenges are deep, but they can be overcome, and our goal is to create a collaborative approach for doing so.”
