Boomers, Millennials, X-ers and more. In NPC circles, we are often involved in discussions with women who are defined culturally for the times in which we have lived. Even as we’re shaped by history and happenstance, we are a circle of sisters for a lifetime.
As the incoming freshman class heads to college this August, we look forward to meeting new women with new ideas. In our circle of sisterhood, they will become our emerging leaders, organizers and visionaries.
All we need to do is open the doors of our thousands of chapters across the U.S. and Canada — and listen.
While hundreds of women close out their national conventions for our 26 member sorority groups, we are already preparing for recruitment and busying ourselves for the activities to come.
No matter the generational divides, our circle is larger and stronger than ever. With the numbers just in, NPC has documented another record year in gaining new undergraduate members — a more than 6 percent increase in 2011 from the prior academic year.
As the numbers continue to reflect, every single sorority provides a life-skills learning lab built upon a solid foundation of values and integrity. The successes of our members are a reflection of the women we want to be … and have yet to become.
We share with you this month a conversation with Dr. Frances Lucas, vice president and campus executive officer of the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast. At age 29, she was the youngest vice president of student affairs in the country and the first female vice president at a Midwestern college.
As Dr. Lucas notes, sororities are perhaps more relevant today than they were 50 or 60 years ago.
Here at NPC, we certainly know it to be true.
