A MESSAGE FROM 2019-2020 PANHELLENIC EXECUTIVE COUNCIL:
To The UC Panhellenic Community,
We, the Executive Board of UC's Panhellenic Council, stand with our Black brothers and sisters and condemn all acts of racism and discrimination. We see you and hear you. You are a valued part of what makes our campus UC and what makes our houses a home.
We, along with our nation, mourn the loss of George Floyd, and all other Black persons that have been subject to the injustice that is deeply rooted in America. It is vital that we continue to advocate and educate for change. This is an important conversation that should not be silenced - the time is now.
Our Panhellenic Council celebrates the diversity and humanity of women across our 11 chapters, as well as the men and women across our National Pan-Hellenic Council, Multi-Cultural Greek Council and Interfraternity Council. Diversity and Inclusion are not only important values of our council, but something both CPC and UC strive to improve on today and every day moving forward.
We are committed to advocating for all women, no matter their race. We will not stay silent in times such as these. Hatred and racism hold no place within our community.
UC Panhellenic Council
