Code of Ethics Southern Methodist University Panhellenic Association We, the members of the Southern Methodist University Panhellenic Association, agree to promote honesty, respect, and sisterhood through respectful adherence to the UNANIMOUS AGREEMENTS and all amendments established by the National Panhellenic Conference. We believe that sorority is a way of life exemplifying the highest ideals of sisterhood. We wish to be womanly always, to be democratic rather than exclusive, and to promote harmony, trust, and cooperation between sororities and fraternities. We agree to uphold and demonstrate the Panhellenic Spirit in thought, word, and action through our chapters as well as individual members. We also maintain and encourage friendly relations with all collegiate women, Greek and non-Greek, realizing the importance of building and strengthening friendships. During the recruitment process, we will treat each prospective member equally, acknowledging and respecting her individuality. A successful recruitment demands that we respect other groups at all times, exhibiting positive attitudes and actions in all of our recruitment efforts. We as sorority members shall work for positive Panhellenic relations by not taking an unfair advantage of a situation to promote our own individual sorority. We believe that all SMU Recruitment Rules and Procedures shall be adhered to, without exception. We desire the well-being of the Greek environment and realize that the responsibility for creating this is not just for our own chapter, but rather all the chapters. If we work together, then and only then will the Greek system live to the potential that it rightfully has. It is in accordance with the dignity and good manners of fraternity women to avoid disparaging remarks about any fraternity or individual member and to avoid publicity on Panhellenic matters which are not properly the concern of non- members. We accept the duties of being members of a Greek organization and will try honestly and diligently to uphold the National Panhellenic standards in thought, word, and deed. We agree in a promise of fellowship, trust, cooperation, and goodwill between all sororities at the University.
