Listing all 26 NPC sororities is misleading. Perhaps you should put a legend on your chart that ** mean legacies get no special treatment.

Yeah— I will. Need to research more, too.

The cover story and another article in the latest issue of The Crescent were focused on heart-warming legacy stories, so I'm guessing there won't be a similar announcement from Gamma Phi Beta anytime soon!

Alpha Gamma Delta has not removed special consideration.

***I would recommend you indicate those fraternities who have not changed their policy to avoid confusion, as mentioned above ***

You can’t edit after 24 hours?
Well, someone may as well delete then, because it won’t stay up to date.

I've not heard anything official from Alpha Xi Delta. In my chapter, we treated all PNMs equal, but of course who doesn't want the fam tradition to continue? We had legacies from other sororities.

Tri Sigma announced yesterday that they are eliminating their legacy policy effective immediately.

Posted on their National Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/sigmasigmasigma/

Sororities were founded during a time in our country’s history when women’s rights were limited—being allowed to attend colleges and universities provided exciting opportunities. Being a part of a sorority enabled women to build friendships and offer support to one another, especially as they navigated the fortuitous changes. Even though doors were opening to women, historical information reveals that the sorority experience was limited to those who were White. The world has since evolved, and Tri Sigma is evolving as well. It is vital to offer a welcoming environment and provide the opportunity for all women to find a home in Tri Sigma.
Realizing the importance of equitable consideration for all women seeking membership in Tri Sigma, and after recommendation by both departments of Chapter Services and Growth Initiatives, on July 6, Executive Council voted in favor of eliminating the current legacy policy. We are confident this change will allow for more significant membership opportunities and empower our collegiate members to have the autonomy to make their own membership selection decisions. This change means that chapters are no longer required to invite a legacy to the first invitational round during recruitment, nor are they required to place legacies at the top of the bid list submitted after the final round of recruitment. Chapters also are no longer required to receive approval from National Headquarters before releasing a legacy.
Tri Sigma will continue to recognize and celebrate Tri Sigma legacies, but potential new members who are legacies will no longer receive preferential treatment during the recruitment process.

This just came in to my email. Add Kappa Alpha Theta to the list. An excerpt from the email:

Today, we share with you that, effective immediately, Kappa Alpha Theta has eliminated all preferential treatment given to legacies during the recruitment process. This means that there will no longer be an automatic invitation following the first round of recruitment or an automatic placement on the chapter’s bid list. We acknowledge that many women are not legacies because their mothers, sisters, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers simply did not have the same access to higher education or the means to join Kappa Alpha Theta. By eliminating preferential treatment for legacies, Theta ensures that PNMs are not receiving additional credit for things beyond their control, such as hometown, race, family connections, etc.
