The Panhellenic Council (PHC) serves as the unifying and governing body for 14 sororities at the University of Minnesota. The PHC legislative body is composed of the council's executive board and delegates from each of the member chapters. PHC creates and implements policies, programs, and training opportunities for its member organizations, and serves as a liaison between the Greek community and various departments and offices within the University of Minnesota. While each chapter embodies their own values, the council as a whole focuses on recruitment, women’s empowerment, leadership development, community service, campus involvement, Greek spirit, and academic achievement. Its officers follow the local PHC constitution and bylaws as well as all National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) Policies. PHC officers attend meetings with the executive committee, representatives of the three governing councils within the fraternity and sorority community, and fraternity and sorority advisors.
