NWU Panhellenic Council Earns National Honor

Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Panhellenic Council—the governing body of NWU’s sororities—has earned national recognition for its outstanding achievements in academics, public relations, self-governance and judicial affairs. The Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV) recognized the council at its national conference in St. Louis, Mo., in February.

AFLV’s Awards and Assessment Program helps councils excel in their programming and management.

“The sorority community and specifically Panhellenic Council worked tirelessly to evaluate their current programming and governing policies,” said Erin Morettes, NWU’s associate director of student involvement and director of Greek life. “Both the fraternity and sorority communities implemented numerous events and workshops that evaluated the community’s commitment to the advancement of brotherhood, sisterhood, academics, leadership and service.”

NWU students Emalee Barto and Kate Eaton of Willard Sorority, and Nicole Peterson of Delta Zeta Sorority, worked throughout 2011 to compile documentation of their award-winning efforts.
