Perhaps you're interested in bringing Phi Mu to your campus. We've worked with others to bring the Phi Mu experience to their schools. Yet there still remains an air of mystery surrounding the process of starting a Phi Mu chapter.
Adding a chapter to a collegiate campus is a process regulated by the National Panhellenic Conference. The NPC has developed specific criteria to direct the process. To form any new sorority on your campus, you should first talk with your Greek advisor or Office of Student Activities to determine if your campus will open for extension and what you can do to start that process.
The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) has an Extension Committee that works with universities with the process of starting new chapters or creating a new panhellenic system. You can contact the NPC administrative office at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about starting the process on your campus
If you are a local sorority that is not affiliated with an NPC group and would like to become a Phi Mu chapter, you can contact Phi Mu at email@example.com and we will be happy to answer your questions.
How We Work Together Phi Mu is dedicated to customizing our extension efforts to fit the needs of your campus. We promise to fit in, yet make a difference. Founded in 1852, Phi Mu is a women's organization which provides personal and academic development, service to others, commitment to excellence and lifelong friendships through a shared tradition. Phi Mu promotes vibrant living encouraging members to achieve their personal best. We look forward to becoming a part of your campus. Phi Mu's colonizations are successful because of the national and local support provided to the new colony. Our chapter consultants, national and area officers, local advisory council, and staff create a support system that is designed uniquely for each new colony. Phi Mu ensures that all new members have a rewarding experience while building a strong foundation for a successful chapter. When chosen to extend, Phi Mu representatives work closely with the college panhellenic and Office of Greek Life throughout the extension and colonization processes.
Following recruitment, resident chapter consultants guide the new colony through the new member period, while helping them accomplish Installation requirements. Other chapter consultants and officers visit the colony to assist with conducting the formal pledging ceremony, officer training and the Initiation/Installation ceremony.
After Installation, the chapter will still receive numerous visits from their chapter consultant and constant support from area advisors, the local advisory council, and national headquarters staff. New chapters receive extra attention and assistance during their first five years to ensure a thriving Phi Mu chapter.
