VALUES

Scholarship: Sororities concentrate on creating successful scholarship programs that help each member reach their academic goals. Chapters take great pride in their academic efforts and encourage their members to make education a top priority. 

Leadership: There are many opportunities for leadership during your time as a sorority member, both within your chapter and on campus at UC. Sororities encourage active involvement in campus organizations and foster the skills necessary for their members to become strong leaders. 

Social Activities: Every UC sorority offers a healthy balance of social activities that focus on sisterhood, friendship and fun! The Panhellenic Council promotes safety and discretion at all chapter-sponsored events. Ohio state law, university policies and each organization's risk management procedures are strictly enforced and followed to increase safety. 

Philanthropy & Service: Involvement in community service is a priority among all chapters at UC. Sorority members contribute volunteer efforts and monetary donations to a number of worthwhile local and national organizations on both the local and national levels. 

Personal Growth & Development: One of the most rewarding parts of sorority membership is experiencing personal growth.

Membership in a sorority comes with an implication of being held to a higher standard. While this affiliation affords members certain privileges, it also bears greater responsibility. Peer accountability and self-governance are key principles to the development of our members, and the success of our community, however, self-governance is a privilege, not a right. Failure to uphold expectations and comply with all university rules, including student organization policies, FSL policies, the Student Code of Conduct, domestic and international travel policies, governing council policies, inter/national organization policies, and local, state, and federal laws risk jeopardizing this privilege.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY

The National Panhellenic Conference and the University of Cincinnati, in compliance with the Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Higher Education Act), do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or ethnicity in any of their policies, practices or procedures.

HAZING CODE 

Hazing in any form at the University of Cincinnati is absolutely forbidden. Hazing is defined as an activity which recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health or safety of a student for the purpose of initiation or admission into, or affiliation with, any organization operating subject to the sanction of the public or private school or of any institution of higher education in the state of Ohio. In addition, the University of Cincinnati Student Rights and Responsibilities Governing Student Behavior document prohibits any form of racial, ethnic and sexual harassment.
