UCSB’s Panhellenic Council is dedicated to encouraging an inclusive, diverse, and accessible atmosphere. We want our community to be a safe space for all. This page provides resources meant to aid Panhellenic members and potential new members in maintaining an inclusive space.
Disabled Students Program:
"Campus Advocacy, Resources & Education office at UCSB provides confidential advocacy and support to students, staff and faculty impacted by sexual assault, dating/domestic violence and stalking. CARE also works collaboratively with students, faculty and staff to educate the campus community about the vital role that each of us has in ending interpersonal violence at UCSB."
"Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to providing timely, culturally appropriate, and effective mental health services to our diverse UCSB student body, as well as professional consultation to faculty, staff, and families.
All registered students are eligible for services at CAPS. When help is needed in sorting out a personal concern, CAPS is a resource for learning new skills in building self-confidence, relating to others, reducing stress, solving problems, and identifying options."

"CLAS’ greater purpose—beyond the role of simply serving students—is helping students take full ownership of their education. When students feel they are learning for themselves, and ultimately from themselves, it gives them the confidence to navigate the most difficult challenges and succeed. Our work here at CLAS is as much about the students’ personal and emotional growth as it is about their academic advancement. Serving students’ immediate study needs is only the starting point; our greater purpose is realized when the students believe in their own abilities, believe in themselves enough to reach their goals, academic or otherwise."
If you ever feel unsafe or uncertain about a situation you may be in or just witnessing, remember it is ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry. Whether it's your life, or the life of another, don't ever be afraid to make the call.

Mission Statement: The Wellness Project aims to bring sorority women together, knowing that personal struggles and insecurities lose their strength in loving and supportive environments.

It is an unfortunate fact that some individuals become targets of hateful acts simply because others are intolerant of differences based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, age, or disability. These acts have no place in our Greek community. The UCSB Panhellenic, Interfraternity, and United Sorority & Fraternity Councils strive to maintain an environment that is welcoming and safe for every member of our community. In the event that a hate crime or incident does occur, UCSB’s Bias Incident Response Team provides assistance to the impacted parties. All councils are working hard to become better and strive to make the Greek community more safe and inclusive. In an effort to promote a more inclusive environment and provide tools to better ourselves, we wish to use our platform to promote this important resource that not many students know about.
This link below will take you to the Campus Climate page where you can report anonymously or by name. Follow the prompts and submit the report. Once you submit a detailed report, the response team will present you multiple options on how to go forward and you can decide what you think is best.
