Multicultural Greek Council Intake

Each organization accepts New Members through a New Member Education process which is set in place by each respective organization’s National infrastructure.

Most organizations participate in a new member process at the beginning of the semester. To partake in this process, an interested member must meet certain requirements set forth by each respective organization (GPA minimum, community service, good character, etc.). These requirements are set forth to ensure each organization has not only a close-knit bond with one-another, but also holds academic achievement and serving the community at a higher standard. If you would like more information on any of the fraternities/sororities within the Multicultural Greek Council, please contact the organization’s president.

National Pan-Hellenic Council Membership Intake

NPHC fraternities and sororities initiate new members through a membership intake process (MIP). Each group holds its process at its own specified and designated time.

NPHC Meet the Greeks is an opportunity to hear from each NPHC organization president regarding the history of their organization and their benefit to our campus. You will have an opportunity to speak in a small group to an affiliated member of an NPHC chapter so that you can learn about the intake process. Meet the Greeks will be held on August 27, 2014 in the Black Cultural Center.

Be sure to attend the Caribbean Splash Jam event during Welcome Week to witness our NPHC organizations particpate in a stroll-off!

Undergraduate students that wish to affiliate with NPHC chapters must meet certain specific membership qualifications. These standards include academic achievement (2.3-2.7 gpa depending upon the organization), community service and good character. Such requirements are designed to promote the building of strong and effective chapters. Each affiliate organization shall implement its own membership intake process that is developed by the National organization.

Each affiliate organization implements the guidelines and details of its own membership intake process, so the lengths of the specific programs vary.
