Black Greek Letter Organizations

| May 21, 2014

npcGreek organizations are comprised of Sororities and Fraternities or organized societies of men and women associated together in an environment of companionship and brother/sisterhood; dedicated to the intellectual, physical, and social development of its members. What typically sets Black Greek Letter Organizations (BGLOs) apart from other Greek organizations is the commitment to community awareness and action through educational, economic, and cultural service activities as well as the continued bond of brother and sisterhood beyond the undergraduate collegiate experience. Members of Black Greek Letter Organizations have the opportunity to remain active with their organizations by joining Graduate chapters upon completing their undergraduate studies.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council

While there are several BGLOs the nine organizations profiled on HBCU Search make up a collaborative organization called the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). The NPHC was founded on May 10, 1930 on the campus of Howard University and later incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois in 1937. The organization’s stated purpose and mission in 1930 was: Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interests to its member organizations.
