National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is the governing body for National Pan-Hellenic Council ("Divine Nine") and historically black 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.
