The Panhellenic Association gives out five distinct awards, in addition to the FSILG Office awards, to recognize the brightest members and chapters that make a difference in the Panhellenic community at MIT. They are the New Member of the Year Award, Chapter Education Award, Campus Involvement Award, Commitment to Service and Philanthropy Award, and Spirit and Participation Award.
New Member of the Year
The New Member of the Year Award recognizes a new member who has made significant contributions to their chapter and/or the Panhellenic Community despite their short time in the community, and who has shown potential for future leadership within their chapter or within Panhel.
The Chapter Education Award is presented to the chapter that demonstrates a comprehensive education program for all members, beyond the new member education period. Programs should include valued integration of the individual sorority, as well as of the greater Greek Community. Supporting documentation of the scope, breadth, and depth of educational sessions should be included.
The Campus Involvement Award is given to the chapter whose members demonstrate extensive leadership and participation in the broader MIT community, including other campus governing groups, student activities/organizations, athletics, arts clubs, etc. A list of sister participation should be included in the nomination letter.
Commitment to Service and Philanthropy
The Committment to Service and Philanthropy Award recognizes the chapter that successfully plans and implements a diverse array of both service and philanthropic programs and events for its members. Documentation should include descriptions of events sponsored or promoted by the chapter, events designed specifically for chapter members to participate in, money raised for philanthropy programs, and time donated by sisters to charitable organizations.
Spirit and Participation
The Spirit and Participation Award is presented to the chapter that has shown continued support and enthusiasm for the Panhellenic Association, its members and programs, and upholding our values and ideals. Supplemental information should include evidence of the chapter’s involvement in Panhel-Council/Executive positions held, programs planned and supported, and showing concern and care for our community development.
