How do I start a Sigma Kappa chapter on my campus? 
This is one of the most frequent questions we are asked! 

As one of 26 members of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), Sigma Kappa abides by a set of policies that all NPC sororities must follow. These policies state that on campuses with sororities, the campus Panhellenic council must first vote to add a new sorority, then review proposals and choose the organization that best fits their sorority community.


Once a local college Panhellenic is officially open for extension, Sigma Kappa will research the opportunity. Our goal is to examine each campus thoroughly and select those opportunities that complement our values and make fiscal sense.


The NPC Extension Committee can assist any campus wishing to add a NPC chapter, establish a Panhellenic system and can guide a local sorority wishing to affiliate with a national organization. For assistance and additional details about the process, please visit:
