Letter to Panhellenic Community Regarding Events on January 6, 2021 at the US Capital

January 8, 2021

Dear Panhellenic Community,

The Panhellenic Association at the University of Michigan is deeply saddened by the recent events in Washington D.C. Along with all of you, The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and the Panhellenic Executive Board have been processing the events of Wednesday at the Capitol. The insurrection at the United States Capitol was an unprecedented and deeply concerning event. Therefore, we want to extend our outreach and support to all of you, as we are committed to your safety and wellness.

Panhellenic Peer Educator Program

The Panhellenic Peer Educator Program began in the fall of 2015 with a goal to increase awareness and educate their community on issues of sexual violence. Panhellenic women from various chapters came together to learn more about these issues, create educational programming, and serve as allies for their Panhellenic sisters. 

Since then, the program has evolved and now has two branches, the Sexual Violence Education and Empowerment branch, and Health and Wellness branch. Some notable events put on by the Peer Educator Program are the Mental Health and Sexual Violence Speak Out.
