ACCOUNTABILITY

Panhellenic Judicial Process

All referrals through the Community Referral Form or to the Panhellenic VPSA (phvpsa@uw.edu) will be handled through the NPC Judicial Process.

The visual to the right explains the College Panhellenic Association Judicial Process that we follow here at UW.

University Conduct Process

When it does not fall under Panhellenic's Jurisdiction, we encourage you to look towards the University of Washingtons Conduct Process. Community Standards and Student Conduct (CCSC) CSSC strives to engage students in an equitable process centered on the values of honesty, integrity, and respect. Students are encouraged to reflect on their actions to understand their impact on the community, and to develop an understanding of their decisions to work toward success.
