The Panhellenic Association (Panhel), established at Michigan in the first decade of the 20th century, provides opportunities for life-long friendships, personal development, academic success, community service and educational growth to over 3,000 students each year.  The council is comprised of values-based organizations that create and execute programming surrounding topics such as mental health, sexual assault awareness, philanthropy and service, academic growth, sisterhood, and creating positive change.

The council prides itself on being the largest all-women’s organization on campus. This guides programming around leadership development and creating supportive networks of women, including our Peer Educator Programming and Social Liaison Training. The Panhellenic Association is a community of women across chapters that support one another and strive to promote a well-rounded Michigan experience.

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. 

Junior Panhellenic

The Junior Panhellenic is an educational and service program sponsored by and modeled on the greater College Panhellenic. It is composed of two representatives of each recognized Panhel chapter on campus, who are new members and newly initiated members. Junior Panhel encourages the special responsiblities and good campus citizenship that all sorority membership entails while fostering intersorority relationships.
