The students of the Duke Panhellenic Association Executive Board have written a statement to clarify the developing situation around the abolishment movement.
With nearly 1,400 members, the Duke University Panhellenic Association is the largest unified body of undergraduate women at Duke University.
The founders of the National Panhellenic Council believed that women should help, inspire, and motivate other women to achieve academic success, and change the world around them. This is no different at Duke University – it is our mission to unite women across all chapters to honor and support one another, so that we can continue building a better life for women at Duke University and beyond.
Chapters emphasize academics through study groups, tutoring, and mentorship. Panhellenic at large has members studying a span of majors across all years, creating a vast network of wisdom and experience in all corners of Duke academics.
Panhellenic chapters help build lasting friendships within and across chapters through programming and traditions, such as big/little, social events, chapter meetings, speakers, off campus activities, and so much more.
Panhellenic and its chapters promote philanthropy through events such as sports tournaments and bake sales, as well as at through campaigns like Build-a-Bear with Panhel, Sexual Assault Prevention Week, and food drives.
The Association and its member chapters promote the development of leadership skills through opportunities and experiences in the chapter, the Association, and mentorship from community leaders.
