Panhellenic Recruitment Team
The Panhellenic Recruitment Team is an essential part of the success of Sorority Life Recruitment. PRT members are an extension of Panhellenic council responsible for supporting Drury University Sorority Life, encouraging new and current students to participate in recruitment and promote opportunities to join Drury University Sorority Life.
PRT members are chosen because of their understanding of the global perspective of Sorority Life, their support of all Drury Sororities and their willingness to assist Panhellenic council by knowing and upholding the standards of Sorority Life Recruitment.
PRT members need to be available for select orientation and Drury events to meet PNMs, get to know them, introduce them to friends and encourage them to participate in Sorority Life Recruitment.
The Panhellenic Recruitment Team assists Panhellenic Council Officers during FYE Registration Day, Orientation and until the official start of Sorority Recruitment.
The Chapter Recruitment Chair selects Panhellenic Recruitment team members from their sorority. All PRT members must be in good standing with the chapter and must work with the other chapter members to promote sisterhood at every activity. These individuals should have a positive attitude and be mentors to potential PNMs who have any questions pertaining to rush.
The Panhellenic Recruitment team is required to participate in the Panhellenic Council PRT training workshop to prepare them for commonly asked questions, rules and regulations, and how to handle situations that may arise relating to Sorority Recruitment.
All PRT members are required to know, understand and uphold all rules, policies and guidelines relating to the Sorority Life community. It is absolutely unacceptable for anyone to say that they didn’t know the rules. It is each members and alumnae’s responsibility to know and uphold all rules relating to Sorority Life Recruitment (NPC Unanimous Agreement).
Considerations for Meeting PNMs
Panhellenic Recruitment Team members will spend time during orientation and the first few days of class on-duty. During on-duty periods, the primary responsibility is to uphold the PRT code of ethics and the Sorority Life Recruitment Policies. However, PRT members will also recruit PNMs to participate Sorority Life Recruitment. PRT members may be asked to be on-duty in a specific location or for a certain period of time.
PRT Relationship with PNMs
Panhellenic Recruitment Team was formed to strengthen the Sorority Life recruiting force. It is very important that PRT members maintain a focus of meeting new students, taking the initiative to speak with them and learn about them.
PRT Chapter Matches
Traditionally, each PRT member is matched with a PRT member from another sorority for on-duty periods. Matches may change, but to ensure parity between all chapters, it is essential that matches remain together during the entire on-duty period.
PRT Addressing Member Issues
PRT members may witness issues involving chapter members. If the situation allows, please immediately try to resolve the issue to benefit the PNM. If the situation is too big to handle at that moment, contact your chapter president for advice.
PRT Reporting Violations Process
In the spirit of Panhellenic Council, all Sorority members should respect and uphold all of the rules and policies governing Sorority Life Recruitment. It is understood that this is not always the case. If you witness a situation that needs to be addressed through the Panhellenic Council Judicial Process, here is what to do:
Members will be held accountable for their actions and they need to understand that their negative actions undermine all Drury University Sorority Life chapters. Panhellenic will address and work through all judicial cases as submitted, in a timely fashion.
As Panhellenic Council Representatives serving on the Panhellenic Recruitment Team, it is imperative to try to impartially resolve issues to service the Potential New Members. If a situation can be stopped before it starts, please work to do so. If support is needed to immediately resolve an issue, PRT members should work with their chapter match, the chapter president or a member of Panhellenic Council.
As a PRT member, the top priority is maintaining a safe, comfortable environment that allows PNMs the opportunity to learn about Sorority Life and build excitement relating to Sorority Life recruitment and joining a Sorority chapter.
