Meet the Greeks
The National Pan-Hellenic Council (founded on May 10,1930 at Howard University, Washington D.C) is the governing body for all historically black fraternities and sororities on the University of Massachusett's campus. Eight of the nine organizations are currently represented on campus: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
The NPHC promotes development through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in programming and initiatives through various activities and functions. University of Massachusetts NPHC members hold various campus positions, participate in numerous service projects, sponsor educational seminars, and host social activities throughout the year. NPHC encourages the uplift of the African-American community on the University of Massachusetts campus, the town of Amherst, and beyond.
We will be intorducing the NPHC (commonly known as the Divine 9) to the Campus. Various topics will be covered: what we stand for, what we are about, and what we strive to do in our community collectively as a council; and also as individual Organizations. Come with questions as we will have a Question and Answer session with a representative from each Organization on the panel.
We hope to see you all there!
