One of the nation’s largest advocacy organizations for women has recognized GW’s Panhellenic Association with an award of excellence.

The George Washington University was among 14 universities that earned the National Panhellenic Conference’s excellence award this year. College Panhellenics, cooperatives comprising all Panhellenic member organizations on a campus, were scored on seven criteria, including academics, programming and community relations.

“We’re extremely proud to receive this honor from the National Panhellenic Conference,” said Rachael Abram, president of GW’s Panhellenic Association. “It would have been impossible to achieve without the 11 incredible chapters that make up the GW Panhellenic Association, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to lead such a thriving Greek community.”

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is an advocacy and support organization for the advancement of the sorority experience. It provides support and guidance for its 26 member sororities and women’s fraternities and serves as a national voice on contemporary issues of sorority life.

“The members of the GW Panhellenic Association’s organizations are extremely strong, intelligent and community-minded women,” said Christina Witkowicki, director of student involvement and Greek life at GW. “To be acknowledged from more than 600 campuses as a community that works together and supports each other as women is an incredible honor and one that these student leaders so deserve.”
