Governing Councils

The Fraternity and Sorority Community is governed by two councils. The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the official governance group of the men's fraternities and the Panhellenic Council (CPH) governs the women's sororities. Council officers for each council are elected near the end of the fall semester and begin their terms at the beginning of the next calendar year and remain in the position for the full calendar year.

Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPH)

The University of Wyoming Panhellenic Council is the governing body for three National Panhellenic Council (NPC) recognized chapters on campus and two local sororities. NPC is the premier advocacy and support organization for the advancement of the sorority experience. Founded in 1902, NPC is one of the oldest and largest women's membership organizations representing more than 4 million women at 655 college/university campuses and 4,500 local alumnae chapters in the U.S. and Canada.

The Wyoming Panhellenic Council, with the help of two delegates from each sorority, strives to provide all members of the affiliated chapters with an opportunity for leadership, scholarship, service, university involvement, network and support, and friendship. The council hosts many annual events, including Fall Recruitment, Greek Week, Panhellenic Tea, community service activities, philanthropy, and educational events. The council’s main goal is to promote positive growth within the Fraternity & Sorority Life/Panhellenic community, the University of Wyoming, and the city of Laramie.
