Leadership Development at College Panhellenic Academy

College Panhellenic Academy is an educational program from the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) designed to equip College Panhellenic officers and advisors with the most up-to-date Panhellenic knowledge, helping ensure the success of College Panhellenics throughout the U.S. and Canada. Academy provides the opportunity for hands-on training with NPC representatives, allowing attendees to refocus their commitment to NPC values and, in turn, shape their sorority communities.

To ensure all attendees have a beneficial experience, NPC hosts multiple educational tracks specific to an officer position. Fraternity/sorority advisors also have educational sessions so they are prepared to assist College Panhellenics. In additional to specialized learning tracks, there are multiple keynote-type speakers that focus on a variety of educational topics. Always a highlight of academy are “The Talks: Learning Through the Stories of Others” in which NPC invites guest speakers to share words of empowerment and inspiration in a similar style to a TED talk. The purpose of “The Talks” is to highlight experiences and stories that can teach lessons to future leaders.  

Academy leaves a positive impact on attendees and allows them to focus on their larger purpose within the Panhellenic community. “My favorite part was that we started academy with a discussion of our values as a Panhellenic,” one participant said.  “I loved the review of the creed and coat of arms, and I thought it was the perfect way to start academy with a purpose.”

College Panhellenic Academy is just one initiative of NPC that supports the leadership development of sorority women. NPC’s 26 member organizations also host a variety of leadership and educational conferences and many provide scholarships that send members to large-group training events that focus on learning and leadership development.
