When you join one of the Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPC) sororities, you not only become a member of that particular chapter, you also become a member of the Panhellenic community. The Collegiate Panhellenic Council governs National Panhellenic Conference chapters and affiliate chapter membership on campus. Iowa State University CPC is a collective representative of 16 sororities on campus. Many of these organizations are inter/nationally governed by the National Panhellenic Conference, which serves as an umbrella organization for these organizations to provide support and advocacy for the advancement of the sorority experience.

These organizations recruit members through a Primary Recruitment process, which occurs each fall before the start of classes, and through a Secondary Recruitment process, which is ongoing the entire school year. Fifteen of these organizations have a chapter facility located south of the Iowa State University campus. CPC has an executive board elected by their peers. The council acts as the central governing body for these sororities with support from the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Engagement. CPC is actively involved with chapter development, programs, and leadership opportunities for chapters and their members. The council coordinates campus and community resources, facilitates service projects, organizes recruitment and represents the ISU Panhellenic community at university, regional, and national meetings. CPC works with the Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council to further the fraternity and sorority mission at Iowa State and collaborates on events and recruiting members to our sorority and fraternity community.
