Four of the sororities at Brown University (Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kappa Delta) are governed by the Panhellenic Association and are members of National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) . Every woman who is a member of one of the four sororities on campus is a member of the Panhellenic Association. The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of the women’s sorority system at the University of Rhode Island.
The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is the governing body of the Panhellenic Council. All policies instituted by the Panhellenic Council have been developed in accordance with NPC policies and recommendations.
The Brown University Panhellenic Council is committed to creating a unified, multi-faceted Greek community by empowering women to discover their fullest potential through continued community and campus involvement, interfraternal collaboration, and academic dedication. We encourage each chapter member to cultivate her strengths while recognizing herself as a part of a broader sisterhood dedicated to the greater good.
The Panhellenic Council is the unifying, governing, and coordinating body of the sorority community. As the communication link between the sororities, campus organizations, community leaders, and potential new members, we strive to maintain a close relationship between our member organizations and the Brown community. We seek to provide personal enrichment and knowledge to all Greek members. Panhellenic's influence is a crucial part of the university, promoting a stronger Greek community.

Primary membership recruitment (or MR) is a period at the beginning of Brown's spring semester in which Potential New Member (PNM) women are given the opportunity to meet the sisters of Brown's four NPC sororities. It will be five or six days of events, which are geared to introduce PNMs to as many active members as possible and give them an idea of each chapter's unique personality. Both the chapters and the PNMs will give input into the final decision of where each PNM will end up. Recruitment is governed by the Brown Panhellenic Council - visit this website to learn more about recruitment dates & registration information.
Each chapter is different, but sisters in Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kappa Delta participate in all kinds of things from intramural and varsity athletics to performance groups to writing for campus publications and much more! On top of that, they host events to raise money for local charities and volunteer at a wide variety of local organizations. If you get involved in the leadership roles, you'll basically be an officer on the board of a small corporation.
