Panhellenic Council is the governing body of women’s fraternities, also known as sororities, at Michigan State University. Currently there are thirteen Panhellenic organizations on campus. Composed of nine officers, the Panhellenic Council is elected by their peers to represent the Greek Community to the university's administration, City of East Lansing, and students of Michigan State. It is Panhellenic Council’s job, along with the Interfraternity Council, to maintain the overall welfare of the Greek Community.
Throughout the calendar year Panhellenic Council organizes and supervises recruitment events to ensure the growth of each organization’s membership. The council also promotes scholastic achievement by monitoring the academic performance of sorority women, offering scholarships, and continuing the Greek honor society, Gamma Sigma Alpha. In order to further membership education, Panhellenic Council brings presentations to campus addressing such issues as sexual assault, diversity, body image, and recruitment skills. As sororities are also social organizations, the council seeks to uphold a safe environment in which members can experience the benefits of social networking. Panhellenic Council encourages philanthropic commitment as an entire Greek Community and also within individual organizations. At an all-Greek level, the community participates in Safe Halloween and Greek Week, both of which the planning is supervised by Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council.
