Oklahoma State University was honored Monday with an award from the National Panhellenic Conference.
The NPC announced its 2020-21 winners of awards in excellence and innovation categories.
OSU received an excellence recognition for its outstanding contributions in all award categories: academic innovation, community impact, judicial procedure, leadership, marketing, programming and recruitment.
College Panhellenic associations are student-led cooperatives comprised of all NPC member sororities on a campus. NPC has recognized their outstanding work through the awards process for more than 50 years.
Casey Domnick, OSU’s coordinator of fraternity and sorority affairs, said the award is well deserved for the women and their sororities.
“The College Panhellenic excellence award is always a wonderful reminder of how incredible the women in the Panhellenic community at Oklahoma State are but even more so this year,” Domnick said. “Through the pandemic, this community of strong women found new and innovative ways to engage the community, provide a home away from home and support during an extremely trying year. I continue to be amazed by these women and look forward to seeing them continue to grow our community in a positive way.”
The NPC is headquartered in Indianapolis and is one of the largest advocacy and support organizations for women. Linda Henderson, the College Panhellenics committee chairwoman, commended the universities who were recognized this year because of their work during the pandemic.
“Despite the hardships presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, these associations continued their focus on high achievement and community support,” Henderson said. “Now is the time to reflect and acknowledge the outstanding contributions made by our College Panhellenics to their sorority community, campus and the community at-large.”
“When OSU students get involved, they make a difference,” said Dr. John Mark Day, the director of leadership and campus life at OSU. “They do better academically, socially and long-term in their careers. This award further demonstrates what we’ve long known — our fraternity and sorority community leads on campus, in the community and in the country. I’m very proud of our Panhellenic students and the incredible work they continue to do.”
