National Panhellenic Conference
The National Panhellenic Conference is an umbrella organization for 26 national women's sororities throughout the United States and Canada. Each member group is autonomous as a Greek-letter society of college women and alumnae; the National Panhellenic Conference provides guidelines and resources for its members and serves as the national voice on contemporary issues of sorority life. Founded in 1902, NPC is one of the oldest and largest women's membership organizations, representing more than 4 million women at over 650 college/university campuses and 4,600 local alumnae chapters in the U. S. and Canada. Each year, NPC-affiliated collegians and alumnae donate more than $5 million to causes, provide $2.8 million in scholarships to women, volunteer 500,000 hours in their communities. The organization holds a philosophy that it is a conference, not a congress, as it enacts no legislation and only regulates its own meetings. Other than basic agreements which its groups must unanimously vote to follow, NPC confines itself to recommendations and advice and acts as a court of final appeal in any College Panhellenic difficulty.
One of its services is providing advisors for college and alumnae Panhellenic organizations. Early histories of women's fraternities contain accounts of "rushing and pledging agreements" or "compacts" among fraternities on various campuses, many stories of cooperation and mutual assistance. However, no actual Panhellenic organization existed and no uniform practices were observed. In 1902, Alpha Phi invited Pi Beta Phi, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Delta Delta Delta, Alpha Chi Omega, Chi Omega to a conference in Chicago on May 24 to set standards for collegiate sororities. Alpha Chi Omega and Chi Omega would join the following year; the remaining seven groups met and the session resulted in the organization of the first interfraternity association and the first intergroup organization on college campuses. This meeting, the next few, resulted in several mutual agreements regarding pledging. Up to this time, no guidelines had been set, women could be pledged to groups before enrolling in college and, indeed belong to more than one group.
Many of the current members joined through the next decade, with Alpha Xi Delta in 1904, Alpha Omicron Pi and Sigma Kappa in 1905, Alpha Delta Pi and Alpha Gamma Delta and Zeta Tau Alpha in 1909, Delta Zeta in 1910, Phi Mu in 1911, Kappa Delta in 1912. No new members were admitted for the next few decades. Throughout its early years, the NPC organizations were racially and religiously segregated and admitted Jewish, Catholic, or minority ethnic members, which to the formation of group-specific sororities which attempted to provide the same social and academic outlets to groups who were otherwise excluded from membership; these groups included the first Black Greek letter organizations. By 1922, the Conference had a structure of an executive committee consisting of a chairman and treasurer; that year, the Congress began plans for its own centralized Panhellenic headquarters to coordinate and streamline interactions with the separate sororities. Shortly before its merger with the NPC, the AES was part of a larger multi-panhellenic association, the Council of Affiliated Panhellenics, with the NPC and the Professional Panhellenic Association.
Members of Sigma Sigma Sigma and Alpha Sigma Alpha organized the Association of Pedagogical Sororities on July 10, 1915. The membership consisted of sororities which were located on state campuses predominantly attended by women entering the educational field. In 1917, Pi Kappa Sigma and Delta Sigma Epsilon joined the association, followed by Theta Sigma Upsilon in 1925, Alpha Sigma Tau in 1926, Pi Delta Theta in 1931. At the third biennial conference, the name of the association was changed to the Association of Educational Sororities; the word "Educational" was changed to "Education". From 1915 through 1926, the NPC and AES operated chapters in the same universities. In 1926, the NPC and AES made an agreement "defining fields of activities of each panhellenic". There was competition between NPC and AES sororities, dual memberships were held. By the 1940s, many teacher's colleges had begun to add liberal arts programs, vice versa, which led to difficulties in functioning separately as they had had in the past.
On November 12, 1947, at a conference in Colorado Springs, the NPC considered and granted associate membership "with reservations" to the six AES sororities. The AES was holding its biennial meeting when it was notified of the NPC decision and, at that meeting, "completed the necessary business and took formal action to dissolve the Association of Education Sororities"; the NPC admitted five other sororities at that same time: Alpha Epsilon Phi, Delta Phi Epsilon, Phi Sigma Sigma, Sigma Delta Tau, Theta Phi Alpha. In December 1951, all 11 of these sororities became full members of NPC. Since that time, three AES members have merged with other NPC groups, leaving Alpha Sigma Alpha, Alpha Sigma Tau, Sigma Sigma Sigma as the remaining former AES members. From the 1940s to the 1960s, various smaller organizations merged into larger ones. On some campuses with two different chapters from the sorority that merged and its merger sorority, a third sorority would colonize on that campus to absorb the smaller sorority's former chapter.
By the end of the 1960s and the Civil rights movement, the NPC sororities eliminated official policies that prevented minority members from joining, although diversity in Greek

Women's colleges in the United States
Women's colleges in the United States are single-sex U. S. institutions of higher education that only admit female students. They are liberal arts colleges. There were 34 active women's colleges in the United States in the fall of 2018, down from a peak of 281 such colleges in the 1960s. See also: Timeline of black women's colleges Education for girls and women was provided within the family, by locals dame schools and public elementary schools, at female seminaries found in every colony, but limited to young ladies from families with the means to pay tuition and, still more limited by the focus on providing ladylike accomplishments rather than academic training; these seminaries or academies were small and ephemeral established founded by a single woman or small group of women, they failed to outlive their founders. In evaluating the many claims of various colleges to have been the "first" women's college, it is necessary to understand that a number of these 18th- or early 19th-century female seminaries grew into academic, degree-granting colleges, while others became notable private high schools.
However, to have been a female seminary at an early date is not the same thing as to have been a women's college at that date. Wesleyan College, chartered in 1836 as a full college for women that could grant degrees equivalent to those men were receiving at the time, was the first true "women's college" in the United States. Institutions of higher education for women, were founded during the early 19th century, many as teaching seminaries; as noted by the Women's College Coalition: The formal education of girls and women began in the middle of the 19th century and was intimately tied to the conception that society had of the appropriate role for women to assume in life. Republican education prepared girls for their future role as wives and mothers and taught religion, dancing, etcetera. Academic education prepared girls for their role as community leaders and social benefactors and had some elements of the education offered boys. Seminaries educated women for the only acceptable occupation: teaching.
Only unmarried women could be teachers. Many early women's colleges began as female seminaries and were responsible for producing an important corps of educators. Irene Harwarth, Mindi Maline, Elizabeth DeBra further note that, "women's colleges were founded during the mid- and late-19th century in response to a need for advanced education for women at a time when they were not admitted to most institutions of higher education." Early proponents of education for women were Sarah Pierce. Lyon was involved in the development of both Hartford Female Ipswich Female Seminary, she was involved in the creation of Wheaton Female Seminary in 1834. In 1837, Lyon founded Mount Holyoke Female Seminary, it was chartered as a college in 1888. Harwarth, DeBra note that, "Mount Holyoke's significance is that it became a model for a multitude of other women's colleges throughout the country.". Both Vassar College and Wellesley College were patterned after Mount Holyoke. Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia was the first college chartered for women, receiving its charter in 1836.
Vassar College was the first of the Seven Sisters to be chartered as a college in 1861. In 1840, the first Catholic women's college Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College was founded by Saint Mother Theodore Guerin of the Sisters of Providence in Indiana as an academy becoming the college; the college became co-educational in 2015. Some early women's colleges, such as Oread Institute chartered as a college for women in Worcester, Massachusetts 1849, the Baltimore Female College founded 1849 at St. Paul Street and East Saratoga Street in downtown Baltimore relocating to Park Avenue/Park Place and Wilson Street in the Bolton Hill neighborhood under its longtime president Dr. Nathan C. Brooks, a noted classics scholar, however failed to survive. Another early women's school was the Moravian College, founded as a female seminary in 1742 in Germantown and moved to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania it was called the Bethlehem Female Seminary, it began to grant undergraduate degrees in 1863 and became the Moravian Seminary and College for Women in 1913.
In 1954, it combined with the boys school, Moravian College and Theological Seminary and became coeducational. The Moravians of Salem, North Carolina began. While there were a few coeducational colleges all colleges and universities at that time were for men; the first accepted coordinate college, H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College, was founded in 1886, followed a year by Evelyn College for Women, the coordinate college for Princeton University; the model was duplicated at other prestigious universities. Notable 19th-century coordinate colleges included Barnard and Radcliffe College. Twentieth-century examples include William Smith College and Kirkland College associated with Hamilton College. While the majority of women's colleges are private institutio

Gay rights activist Rita Mae Brown socialized with Flannery in Los Angeles in the mid-1970s.
They met through their mutual friend Fannie Flagg. Brown wrote the following about Flannery in her 1997 memoir Rita Will.:She'd been a star in a long-running TV program and had left to take a prominent role in a film. White-blonde, with a heart-shaped face, blue eyes and a great figure, she appeared every inch a woman ready to become a major movie star, she had looks and drive. What she lacked was the ability to kiss ass. Just when her career should have rocketed, it began to drop to Earth. Approaching forty added to the tension, she is a decent one. Word got about; that was amended to "difficult dyke." It wasn't too long before she languished in her beautiful shared Montecito, California home wondering what the hell had happened. Were Susan at the same career fulcrum today, she'd have a fifty-fifty chance of swinging up. In the mid-seventies, she had no chance. Today she's back on television; because she didn't marry to play the game, she might as well have announced. Other people announced it for her.
She kept stiff-armed any attempts to create a bogus heterosexual life. She and Fannie had been together for eight years; the cracks in their relationship widened under the pressure. Many of Susan and Fannie's friends knew they were lovers; the isolation, under the circumstances, had to have been painful for Susan. My heart went out to her. After my initial visit, the three of us palled around together; the more I knew Susan, the more I liked her. If there had been a way for the three of us to live together, I would have tried it because I grew to respect Susan and to value her for the generous and kind person she is. Like her Irish forebears, she engaged her crisis with good humor and the hope that she'd learn something.

U.S. News & World Report
U. S. News & World Report is an American media company that publishes news, consumer advice and analysis. Founded as a newsweekly magazine in 1933, U. S. News transitioned to web-based publishing in 2010. U. S. News is best known today for its influential Best Colleges and Best Hospitals rankings, but it has expanded its content and product offerings in education, money, careers and cars; the rankings are popular in North America but have drawn widespread criticism from colleges and students for their dubious and arbitrary nature. The ranking system by U. S. News is contrasted with the Washington Monthly and Forbes rankings. United States News was founded in 1933 by David Lawrence, who started World Report in 1946; the two magazines covered national and international news separately, but Lawrence merged them into U. S. News & World Report in 1948, he subsequently sold the magazine to his employees. The magazine tended to be more conservative than its two primary competitors and Newsweek, focused more on economic and education stories.
It eschewed sports and celebrity news. Important milestones in the early history of the magazine include the introduction of the "Washington Whispers" column in 1934 and the "News You Can Use" column in 1952. In 1958, the weekly magazine's circulation passed one million and reached two million by 1973. Since 1983, it has become known for its influential ranking and annual reports of colleges and graduate schools, spanning across most fields and subjects. U. S. News & World Report is America's oldest and best-known ranker of academic institutions, covers the fields of business, medicine, education, social sciences and public affairs, in addition to many other areas, its print edition was included in national bestseller lists, augmented by online subscriptions. Additional rankings published by U. S. News & World Report include medical specialties and automobiles. In October 1984, publisher and real estate developer Mortimer Zuckerman purchased U. S. News & World Report. Zuckerman is formerly the owner of the New York Daily News.
In 1993, U. S. News & World Report entered the digital world by providing content to CompuServe and in 1995, the website usnews.com was launched. In 2001, the website won the National Magazine Award for General Excellence Online. In 2007, U. S. News & World Report published its first list of the nation's best high schools, its ranking methodology includes state test scores and the success of poor and minority students on these exams, schools' performance in Advanced Placement exams. Starting in June 2008, the magazine reduced its publication frequency in three steps. In June 2008, citing the decline overall magazine circulation and advertising, U. S. News & World Report announced that it would become a biweekly publication, starting January 2009, it hoped advertisers would be attracted to the schedule, which allowed ads to stay on newsstands a week longer. However, five months the magazine changed its frequency again, becoming monthly. In August 2008, U. S. News revamped its online opinion section.
The new version of the opinion page included daily new op-ed content as well as the new Thomas Jefferson Street blog. An internal memo was sent on November 5, 2010, to the staff of the magazine informing them that the "December issue will be our last print monthly sent to subscribers, whose remaining print and digital replica subscriptions will be filled by other publishers." The memo went on to say that the publication would be moving to a digital format but that it would continue to print special issues such as "the college and grad guides, as well as hospital and personal finance guides." Prior to going defunct, U. S. News was the lowest-ranking news magazine in the U. S. after Time and Newsweek. A weekly digital magazine, U. S. News Weekly, introduced in January 2009, continued to offer subscription content until it ceased at the end of April 2015; the company is owned by U. S. News & World Report, L. P. a held company based in the Daily News building in New York City. The editorial staff is headquartered in Washington, D.
C. The company's move to the Web made it possible for U. S. News & World Report to expand its service journalism with the introduction of several consumer-facing rankings products; the company returned to profitability in 2013. The editorial staff of U. S. News & World Report is based in Washington, D. C. and Brian Kelly has been the chief content officer since April 2007. The company is owned by media proprietor Mortimer Zuckerman; the first of the U. S. News & World Report's famous rankings was its "Who Runs America?" surveys. These ran in the spring of each year from 1974 to 1986; the magazine would have a cover featuring persons selected by the USN & WR as being the ten most powerful persons in the United States. Every single edition of the series listed the President of the United States as the most powerful person, but the #2 position included such persons as Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Federal Reserve Chairmen Paul Volcker and Arthur Burns and US Senator Edward Kennedy. While most of the top ten each year were officials in government others were included, including TV anchormen Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather, Chase Manhattan Bank Chairman David Rockefeller, AFL-CIO leader George Meany, consumer advocate Ralph Nader.
The only woman to make the top ten list was First Lady Rosalynn Carter in 1980. In addition to these overall top ten persons, the publication included top persons in each of several fields, including Education, Finance and many other areas; the surv
Louisiana is a state in the Deep South region of the South Central United States. It is the 25th most populous of the 50 United States. Louisiana is bordered by the state of Texas to the west, Arkansas to the north, Mississippi to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the south. A large part of its eastern boundary is demarcated by the Mississippi River. Louisiana is the only U. S. state with political subdivisions termed parishes. The state's capital is Baton Rouge, its largest city is New Orleans. Much of the state's lands were formed from sediment washed down the Mississippi River, leaving enormous deltas and vast areas of coastal marsh and swamp; these contain a rich southern biota. There are many species of tree frogs, fish such as sturgeon and paddlefish. In more elevated areas, fire is a natural process in the landscape, has produced extensive areas of longleaf pine forest and wet savannas; these support an exceptionally large number of plant species, including many species of terrestrial orchids and carnivorous plants.
Louisiana has more Native American tribes than any other southern state, including four that are federally recognized, ten that are state recognized, four that have not received recognition. Some Louisiana urban environments have a multicultural, multilingual heritage, being so influenced by a mixture of 18th-century French, Spanish, Native American, African cultures that they are considered to be exceptional in the US. Before the American purchase of the territory in 1803, present-day Louisiana State had been both a French colony and for a brief period a Spanish one. In addition, colonists imported numerous African people as slaves in the 18th century. Many came from peoples of the same region of West Africa. In the post-Civil War environment, Anglo-Americans increased the pressure for Anglicization, in 1921, English was for a time made the sole language of instruction in Louisiana schools before a policy of multilingualism was revived in 1974. There has never been an official language in Louisiana, the state constitution enumerates "the right of the people to preserve and promote their respective historic and cultural origins."
Louisiana was named after Louis XIV, King of France from 1643 to 1715. When René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle claimed the territory drained by the Mississippi River for France, he named it La Louisiane; the suffix -ana is a Latin suffix that can refer to "information relating to a particular individual, subject, or place." Thus Louis + ana carries the idea of "related to Louis." Once part of the French Colonial Empire, the Louisiana Territory stretched from present-day Mobile Bay to just north of the present-day Canada–United States border, including a small part of what is now the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Gulf of Mexico did not exist 250 million years ago when there was but one supercontinent, Pangea; as Pangea split apart, the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico opened. Louisiana developed, over millions of years, from water into land, from north to south; the oldest rocks are exposed in areas such as the Kisatchie National Forest. The oldest rocks date back to the early Cenozoic Era, some 60 million years ago.
The history of the formation of these rocks can be found in D. Spearing's Roadside Geology of Louisiana; the youngest parts of the state were formed during the last 12,000 years as successive deltas of the Mississippi River: the Maringouin, Teche, St. Bernard, the modern Mississippi, now the Atchafalaya; the sediments were carried from north to south by the Mississippi River. In between the Tertiary rocks of the north, the new sediments along the coast, is a vast belt known as the Pleistocene Terraces, their age and distribution can be related to the rise and fall of sea levels during past ice ages. In general, the northern terraces have had sufficient time for rivers to cut deep channels, while the newer terraces tend to be much flatter. Salt domes are found in Louisiana, their origin can be traced back to the early Gulf of Mexico, when the shallow ocean had high rates of evaporation. There are several hundred salt domes in the state. Salt domes are important not only as a source of salt. Louisiana is bordered to the west by Texas.
The state may properly be divided into two parts, the uplands of the north, the alluvial along the coast. The alluvial region includes low swamp lands, coastal marshlands and beaches, barrier islands that cover about 20,000 square miles; this area lies principally along the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River, which traverses the state from north to south for a distance of about 600 mi ) and empties into the Gulf of Mexico. The breadth of the alluvial region along the Mississippi is from 10 to 60 miles, along the other rivers, the alluvial region averages about 10 miles across; the Mississippi River flows along a ridge formed by its own natural deposits, from which the lands decline toward a river beyond at an average fall of six feet per mile. The alluvial lands along other streams present similar features; the higher and contiguous hill lands of the north and northwestern part of the state have an area of more than 25,000 square miles. They consist of prairie and woodl
Kappa Delta Pi
Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education, was founded in 1911 and was one of the first discipline-specific honor societies. Its membership is limited to the top 20 percent of those entering the field of education. Membership is open only to the top 20 percent of those entering the education field. In addition, undergraduates must have a 3.0 GPA, graduate students a 3.25 GPA. Membership for active professionals varies. Among those involved as Professional Members are principals. Individuals must maintain active membership each year through payment of dues to continue to receive benefits. Though direct involvement with a chapter is optional, members may join community-based networking groups via KDP Global to extend their support system and mentoring community. Kappa Delta Pi was founded in 1911 at the University of Illinois in order to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. In 1912, a petition to merge Kappa Delta Pi and Phi Delta Kappa was declined by the latter because PDK could not agree to the terms that women be allowed in an "honor fraternity".
In 1920, William Chandler Bagley installed a Kappa Delta Pi chapter at Teachers College, Columbia University. Four years American pragmatist philosopher and educationalist John Dewey was inducted as the first member of the Society's Laureate Chapter; the Society's flagship publication, The Educational Forum, was first published in 1936. Among the more than 625 chapters around the world are institutional chapters affiliated with teacher education programs, including community colleges and virtual universities. Led by students and faculty, these chapters provide local members with networking, leadership and professional development programming. In addition to individual programs and events provided through individual chapters, all members can participate in professional development located on the Kappa Delta Pi website, which includes webinars and KDP Global. Alumni/professional chapters and affiliate chapters, organized in school districts or cities, offer members opportunities to participate in educational and service activities and to grow through professional development.
The Society headquarters is responsible for the daily operations of the Society. The headquarters staff maintains membership and financial records, provides support and assistance to institutional, alumni/professional, affiliate chapters and members. Headquarters offices are located in Indiana; the Kappa Delta Pi Educational Foundation solicits contributions to fund educational programs for the Society and its members. Since 1980, the Foundation has awarded more than $1 million for programs and scholarships. Members of KDP serve as Kappa Delta Pi Educational Foundation trustees to oversee policies and governance; the Society is led by the Executive Council, which consists of nine elected members who are responsible for the vision, fiscal security, general oversight of the association. The Executive Council appoints chairs and members of national committees. Biennially, the legislative body of the Society convenes to determine policy for the organization, including changes to the bylaws. Voting delegates elected by chapters represent their local voice and opinions at the Convocation.
The New Teacher Advocate, published quarterly, offers novice and apprentice teachers connections and support through practice-oriented articles and expert-advice columns. The Kappa Delta Pi Record, published quarterly, presents practical articles on compelling topics and issues important to practicing educators who teach at all levels and in a wide range of disciplines in classrooms and other educational settings; the Educational Forum is a doubly masked, peer-reviewed journal, published quarterly. The Laureate Chapter was established in 1924 to honor individuals who have made contributions to the development of professional education, it is limited to 60 living persons.
