panhellenic
CODE of ETHICS
As members of the University of Iowa Panhellenic Council, we the undersigned
agree that our vision is a safe, positive, enriching recruitment experience with the
goal of providing opportunities for the greatest possible number of women to obtain
membership in a women’s fraternity. In order to reach our common goal, we will strive
to create a Panhellenic environment of trust, honesty, unity, and cooperation among all
chapters. Therefore, we solemnly promise to:
• Respect ourselves, our sisters, and the Fraternity and Sorority community as a whole.
We will work with other sororities to improve the Fraternity and Sorority community.
• Enable every Potential New Member an equal opportunity and act accordingly with
true Panhellenic spirit as well as our own chapter values and moral judgments.
• Promote the safety and protection of current and prospective members.
• Treat Potential New Members with the same respect before, during, and
after recruitment.
• Abide by all official Panhellenic codes, including but not limited to: The Panhellenic
Creed, The Potential New Member Bill of Rights, The Panhellenic Recruitment Rules, The
National Panhellenic Conference Unanimous Agreements.
• Leave the Potential New Member with a positive idea of what sisterhood could be.
• Encourage the Potential New Member to explore the freedom of thought in her decisions.
• Assure the Potential New Member about the recruitment process, membership
requirements and external and internal responsibilities.
• Enable every Potential New Member an equal opportunity to a level playing field.
• Strive to maintain a campus scholastic average that is above the all-women’s average.

The Iowa Panhellenic Council desires to build a community that reflects diversity
and inclusion within our sorority chapters. We strive to make our campus stronger
through our commitment to promoting diversity and creating positive change
within the Greek Community. Women of all backgrounds make up the Iowa
Panhellenic Council and each individual is celebrated for her perspectives, ideas, and
contributions to her organization and our entire community.

10
Before signing your MRABA ...
Check YES or NO to the Following Statements:

YES NO
1. I would participate in this sorority’s
philanthropy because it is interesting to me.

2. This sorority seems interested in having me


as a member of their organization.

3. This sorority has members that I’ve


connected well with during the
recruitment process.

4. Being a member of this sorority will have a


positive effect on my collegiate career.

5. I can be myself in this sorority.

6. The sorority cares about academics


and scholarship.

7. This sorority is much more than the


stereotypical sorority you would see in
the movies.

8. This sorority and I have a lot in common


pertaining to my values.

9. This sorority strives for individual growth and


makes me want to reach my full potential.

10. I would happily accept a bid from this


chapter, and could see myself in this chapter.

11
Decoding the MRABA
MRABA stands for Membership Recruitment Acceptance
Binding Agreement. It is the document that is signed right
before final selections are made during Preference round. The
MRABA is broken down into nine sections. However, the first
six sections are intended for PNMs to read and understand.
It is important that you fully comprehend the contract before
making your final preferences. Don’t fret; we will
break it down for you!

1. I am willing to accept an invitation to membership from any


sorority or women’s fraternity that I list on this agreement.

• PNMs should only list the chapters they are willing to join.

2. I may limit my choices to just one OR list any sorority or women’s


fraternity whose preference-round (last) event I attended, and
from which I am willing to accept membership. I realize that by
not listing the maximum number of events I attended, I may be
limiting my potential to join any other NPC group during primary
recruitment should I not be placed with my choice(s).

• A PNM can only rank chapters whose final (preference) events


she attended (if she went to A and B, C isn’t an option). She
doesn’t have to rank all the chapters she attended, but we
encourage her to maximize her options, because it gives her a
better chance of being matched to a group.

3. Once I submit this agreement to the Panhellenic Association,


I cannot change the order of my preferences or add or delete
a preference.

• Once the form is signed and submitted, the order of the


chapter list and selections cannot be altered.

12
4. If I do not receive an invitation to membership from a group
listed, I am eligible for continuous open bidding.

• If a PNM does not maximize her option and doesn’t receive


a bid from a group listed on her MRABA, she can join any
chapter through continuous open bidding (COB) or informal
recruitment. This is only available to groups that have open
spots in their chapter.

5. I have the option of not submitting an agreement at this time.

• A PNM does not have to submit an MRABA, which results in


her being removed from the recruitment process.

6. Once I submit this agreement, I am bound by the National


Panhellenic Conference one calendar year rule. This rule states
that if through the primary membership recruitment process, I
receive a bid and decline it, then I am ineligible to be pledged to
another NPC fraternity on the same campus until the beginning
of the next primary membership recruitment period.

• If a PNM receives a bid from a chapter she lists and then later
chooses not to be pledged or initiated, she cannot join another
NPC group on that campus until the next primary membership
recruitment period. If she is not initiated and transfers schools,
she can participate in recruitment at the first opportunity on
the new campus.

Values Based
Sorority Recruitment
at the University of Iowa
The University of Iowa Panhellenic Council utilizes a Values Based
Sorority Recruitment (VBSR) during Fall Formal Recruitment.
This means that Potential New Members should choose and be
placed in a chapter whose sorority values match with their own.
Throughout recruitment, you will be aware of your most important
values and what you look for in a sorority. Even though every
sorority was founded on the same values, there are many aspects
that make each sorority different from one another. Make sure to
start meaningful conversations with sorority women to see if their
values are important to you.

Recruitment Q & A
Do I need to attend ALL of the events I have listed on my
party list?
YES. If you intentionally miss an event to which you were invited,
you are not maximizing your options and will be released from the
rest of the recruitment process.
Is hazing something to be worried about?
Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created, whether
on or off fraternity/sorority property, to produce mental or physical
discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. We have
a zero tolerance policy for hazing at the University of Iowa. No
member is allowed to participate in any form of hazing. If you
have any further concerns, do not hesitate to speak with your
Rho Gamma or any of the Panhellenic Council officers.

16
What if I only want to be in a certain sorority?
Being close-minded and only wanting to be a member of
one specific sorority or considering only a few sororities can
really limit your options of sorority membership and lead you
to disappointment. Please don’t choose a sorority based on
stereotypes or others’ opinions. This is your experience. So follow
your heart, stay true to yourself, and you will end up in the place
that is meant for you.
What if I receive a bid and turn it down?
If you wish to join a sorority after preference night, you will fill
out a Membership Recruitment Acceptance Binding Agreement
(MRABA) before you make your chapter selections. When you
sign your MRABA, you are bound to that sorority for one calendar
year. This means if you receive a bid and do not accept it, you
will not be allowed to join another sorority until next Fall Formal
Recruitment. Emotions can temporarily cloud judgment, so think
wisely before turning down a bid card. If you decide to not join
a sorority before you fill out the MRABA, you may participate in
Continuous Open Bidding (COB) or choose to go through informal
recruitment in the spring.
What is “mutual selection”?
“Mutual selection” is the process we use for formal recruitment. It
means that as you go through the rounds, you're narrowing down
your choices, as well as the chapters are narrowing down the
amount of PNMs they are inviting back. To put things simpler: You
choose them AND they choose you. All in all, the mutual selection
process is there to help you and is proven to be successful.
How much does it cost to be in a sorority?
Being in a sorority is like all membership organizations at the
University of Iowa and does require a payment of dues. This money
is used to fund the operations, social events, and programming
for the chapter. If the chapter you choose has a chapter house,
then dues will be higher since there is a chapter facility that needs
maintaining. The costs of sorority membership vary from chapter
to chapter, so please refer to the individual finance forms provided
on each chapter’s spotlight pages.

during an event.

THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA


Panhellenic Community Grade Standards
Due to our continuous
pursuit of Academic
Excellence in the
Panhellenic Council,
all of our sororities
have a minimum Grade
Point Average (GPA)
requirement at or above
2.75 on a 4.0 scale for all
their members to uphold.
Each individual sorority
determines its own
minimum GPA requirement
to join which may be
higher than a 2.75 GPA.

We, as undergraduate members of women’s
fraternities, stand for scholarship, for the guarding of
good health, for the maintenance of fine standards,
and for serving, to the best of our ability, our college
community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life,
in harmony, with its best possibilities, is the ideal that
shall guide our fraternity activities. We, as Fraternity
women, stand for service through the development
of character inspired by the close contact and deep
friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life.
