Quinnipiac’s Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council were both recognized for their efforts to improve the community recently at the Northeast Greek Leadership Conference.

The Interfraternity Council earned the Amy Vojta Impact Award, which recognizes efforts and programs that generate positive outcomes within the community. Additionally, the Panhellenic Council received the Hank Nuwer Award for Hazing Preventions, which recognizes the creation of safe environment within Greek Life setting.

Haley Wong, a member of Gamma Phi Beta and the 2020 Panhellenic Council Officer, was recognized for her tireless efforts with the Greek Leader of Distinction Award, which celebrates extraordinary leadership and determination within her individual chapter and community.

Katherine Pezzella, director of campus life for fraternity and sorority Life, said she is proud of the achievements — particularly since they were able to adapt and advocate for change even during the pandemic.

“The 2020 Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council leaders were exceptional role models for the fraternity/sorority and university communities in terms of creating and supporting engaging and impactful programming in the midst of a global pandemic in line with the Q-Flex model,” she said. “They pivoted quickly and enthusiastically to re-imagine annual programs for hybrid delivery and even created some new initiatives and events last year despite the challenges we all faced. I am proud and excited that their work in these particular areas was recognized by the Northeast Greek Leadership Association.”
