Butler University has received an achievement award from the National Panhellenic Conference recognizing the quality of its sororities in areas that include academics, programming, and community relations.

_BS12660“These awards are given to those who are following the exemplary standards set for Panhellenic women,” said Nicki Meneley, executive director of the conference.

Becky Druetzler, Butler’s director of Greek life, said this recognition puts the University in the top 5 percent of all Panhellenic communities in the United States and Canada.

College Panhellenics, which are cooperatives comprised of all sororities on a campus, are scored on seven criteria. Butler was one of 19 schools to win an achievement award. Fourteen schools received excellence awards.

“I am extremely proud of our students for this outstanding accomplishment,” Druetzler said. “This is the outcome of a new awards process for NPC, and we did not know what to expect. Recognition acknowledges core competencies in the areas of academics, community impact and relations, communication, council structure, judicial procedures, recruitment, and programming. Butler Panhellenic leaders have consistently employed best practices in their council operation and management.”

Butler has seven National Panhellenic Conference sororities: Alpha Chi Omega; Alpha Phi; Delta Gamma; Delta Delta Delta; Kappa Alpha Theta; Kappa Kappa Gamma; and Pi Beta Phi.
