Circle of Sisterhood

Circle of Sisterhood is a national philanthropy associated with College Panhellenic Council. Circle of Sisterhood is a foundation dedicated to the education of women around the globe. For too many girls and women around the world, access to quality education is often limited. Two-thirds of all illiterate adults in the world are female, and not even seven percent of the world’s population has a college degree. Education is an answer to many of the global issues related to women – poverty, oppression, misogyny, brutality. Ultimately, more and more educated girls will mean stronger and healthier villages, communities, and entire countries. Without education, girls and women all over the world are unable to reach their full potential. Sorority women are fortunate to have the one thing that will help most women out of poverty—an education. As such, we have a responsibility to those less fortunate.The Circle of Sisterhood is a mechanism by which all sorority women can stand together across affiliation, age, color, and creed to make a difference in the lives of millions of girls and women. Collectively, we can do much more than we could as individuals or individual groups.

Each year, College Panhellenic Council hosts a Sisterhood Week dedicated to Circle of Sisterhood. Circle of Sisterhood Week will be April 10-15, 2018.
