Our Story

The Coalition for Collegiate Women's Leadership is long-rooted in student involvement.

The Panhellenic Councils of Alabama Polytechnic Institute (now Auburn University) and the University of Alabama joined forces to host the first Southeastern Panhellenic Conference on February 25, 1955.

Auburn Panhellenic Treasurer Lucy Roy served as chairperson while President Beth Colovitz presided over business. Attendees gathered for meals and workshops covering topics like recruitment, Greek relations and service projects. Kappa Delta National President Mrs. Julia Ober was an official speaker, addressing over 300 collegiate women during a luncheon event.
