Councils

The Interfraternity, Multicultural Greek, National Pan-Hellenic, and Panhellenic Councils serve a unique role in the fraternity and sorority community at Penn State. These governing bodies determine policies, procedures, rules, and standards for the fraternity and sorority chapters that fall under their purview. There are currently four governing councils at the University Park campus:

  • Interfraternity Council (IFC) - the governing body for the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), professional and independent men's and co-ed fraternity chapters.
  • Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) - the governing body for culturally based fraternity and sorority chapters.
  • National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) - the governing body for National Pan-Hellenic Council ("Divine Nine") and historically black fraternity and sorority chapters.
  • Panhellenic Council (PHC) - the governing body for the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), professional and independent women's fraternity and sorority chapters.

Chapters

In order for a fraternity or sorority to operate at Penn State, they must be recognized as an affiliate group of their inter/national fraternity or sorority, otherwise known as a chapter. Penn State fraternities and sororities also maintain recognition with the University by upholding the chapter standing for fraternity and sorority chapters.
