About the Coalition

The Coalition for Collegiate Women’s Leadership, formerly the Southeastern Panhellenic Association (SEPA), began with the first meeting of the Southeastern Panhellenic Conference (SEPC) more than 60 years ago.

Today, the Coalition continues to bring collegiate women together with the goal of education, support and connection. Thousands have taken part in our annual conference, a three-day event including education on leadership and pressing topics in the collegiate and fraternal community. Connections made at each event have created a unique and powerful network of female leaders, encouraging generations of women to rise as problem solvers in their chapters, campuses and communities. We believe that, together, women can change the world. We seek to give women the resources, programs and community they need to spark conversation and make positive impacts.

Our team is dedicated to advancing our cause of empowering the next generations of leaders while ensuring they have exceptional experiences with the Coalition.
