Statement from PHC, IFC, and FSL
The Kansas State University Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council, as well as the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, are disgusted and disheartened at the recent social media post of a former member and K-State student. We do not condone the individual’s actions as they do not represent the values of the councils or member chapters. The fraternities and sororities at K-State are dedicated to promoting an inclusive and respectful environment regardless of race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability. We are steadfast in promoting the K-State Principles of Community and the values of our organizations.
We also recognize that this incident shines a light on a culture of intolerance that needs to be addressed not only at our University, but at many across the country. As we move forward, our Councils and member chapters reaffirm our commitment to fostering diversity on campus and within fraternal organizations.
We fully support the requests made in a previous statement released by the Black Student Union, including but not limited to an on campus Multicultural Student Center, need based scholarships for multicultural students, adding an anti-racism policy to the student code of conduct, and requiring a cultural competency course.
We will continue to advocate for a more inclusive K-State community.
Panhellenic Sorority Recruitment!
Thanks for a great Primary Panhellenic Recruitment! We had 644 women join the sorority community.
Select chapters are still recruiting! If you would like to join a sorority, consider joining through Continuous Open Biddingwhich is an informal recruitment process!
Welcome Alpha Gamma Delta!
PHC is excited to welcome Alpha Gamma Delta to the sorority community! They colonized in September 2015. For information about AGD, visit k-state.goalphagam.com. Follow @KStateAlphaGam on Twitter for updates on the K-State colony.
As of May 19, 2014, the Beta Kappa chapter of Sigma Nu fraternity has lost recognition as a K-State Interfraternity Council member, and has been suspended from campus.
