National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)

It is the mission of the National Pan-Hellenic Council to promote cooperation and harmony between member organizations and between members and other campus organizations in developing the best possible public image for the Greek community.
The purpose of the National Pan-Hellenic Council shall be as follows:
  1. To act as a unifying body that promotes scholarships, community service, campus involvement, and success for each active organization.
  2. To take steps to alleviate business problems within the Greek Community. To take steps to alleviate business associated issues between organizations within the Greek Community.
  3. NPHC is the governing body of the Divine Nine Greek Letter Organizations. Therefore, any other organization disputes should be handled by other means, because they are not a part of the Divine Nine.
  4. To promote positive inter-Greek relations among IFC, CPH, IGC, and the campus community.

Some organizations may require students to complete more than one semester. The organizations determine which semester intake will occur (most organizations will not complete an intake process for both fall and spring semesters of the same academic year). 


1. Have completed at least one semester of school (some organizations may require more than one completed semester)
2. Be in good academic standing in order to meet the individual organization GPA requirement
3. Service Hours (most organizations require a set amount of service hours before joining)
