Circle of Sisterhood Removing Barriers to Education

While each chapter at Virginia Tech supports their own philanthropy, the entirety of the Panhellenic community supports the Circle of Sisterhood foundation.

"The Circle of Sisterhood foundation 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 around the world. Collectively, we are one of the largest communities of college-educated women in the world while not even seven percent of the world - men and women combined - have college degrees, and two thirds of all illiterate adults are women. Standing together as one community, we will give girls and women an equal chance for rewarding lives and livelihoods through schooling, the learning of a trade, or even a college degree."

Each semester our community comes together to raise money for Circle of Sisterhood and awareness of its phenomenal cause. In previous years we have held events such as percentage nights, self defense classes, and Panhel Week (pictured here). All of these events work to raise money in order to provide girls and women equal opportunities and access when it comes to education.
