Sororities set to examine the values of Greek life
The nationally recognized Panhellenic seminar, titled Something of Value, will be held this weekend at CU with the goal of re-instating sorority community values.
The seminar is an “internal sorority event designed to strengthen leadership and communication and help embrace the National Panhellenic Conference values,” said Tera Haselden, Panhellenic president and senior advertising major.
Each of the 10 national sororities at CU will sponsor 11 women who have been selected to attend the event. The NPC made nine of these selections based on the office positions of the women. The remaining two women selected are sophomores that have shown potential as emerging leaders.
Two representatives from the National Panhellenic Conference, along with leaders and representatives from each national sorority, will help facilitate the weekend event.
The seminar consists of official presentations along with small and large group sessions. The sessions are designed to examine the values upon which the sorority community was originally founded.
Women at the event will present what they have learned to their fellow sorority members who were not present at the event. From there, sorority members will redefine their values for the future and strive to form a stronger bond with members from other chapters, said John Henderson, CU’s director of Greek affairs.
CU Panhellenic sororities have been meeting to develop standards of excellence throughout last spring and this fall. The women of these organizations requested the presentation of “Something of Value” at CU.
