The National Pan-Hellenic Council is the official coordinating agent for nine historically Black Greek letter fraternities and sororities. NPHC and its member organizations have a profound commitment to providing community service and promoting the welfare of the campus and community. The Northwest Missouri State University Chapter of NPHC serves as the communication link among the affiliate organizations. Currently, four of the nine NPHC member organizations are represented at Northwest.

The Northwest Missouri State University NPHC serves as a standard-setting body for the affiliate organizations present on campus. NPHC strives to foster and maintain a cooperative environment among member affiliate members, as well as the general campus and community. NPHC serves as a forum for the consideration of issues important to its member organizations. The Council acts as a coordinator of activities and matters of common interest among member fraternities and sororities.

If you are interested in joining a NPHC organization at Northwest, we encourage you to visit the intake link on this website to learn about the process, contact the Office of Campus Activities at 660.562.1226 or e-mail us at

I chose to become Greek to view another perspective during my college journey. I didn’t enjoy college until I looked into Greek opportunities and how I can bring new ideas and enthusiasm to the Greek community. Being pushed to get out and explore new things was a big step for me, but I am very happy that I did so because I’ve met lots of great new people. I’ve traveled to places that I never thought I’d go, and I am looking forward to what is still to come. Greek Life is something that I can’t live without because it pulls my leadership role out of me and I am so grateful that it has.

I enjoy being a part of Greek Life because it calls for me to discover new things about other organizations aside from the organizations I am already a part of.  Greek Life has also created new horizons for me in and outside of the university by allowing me properly interact with many individuals on personal and professional levels. While being involved in Greek Life I have learned how to manage my time properly which has helped me reach my fullest potential as an active member and student. I have noticed new and inspiring things about myself that I hope to pass on to others , thanks to my participation in Greek Life. Most of all, I absolutely love the friendships and bonds that I have developed with new and old members of Greek Life. By being an active member in my chapter and an active member on the board of National Pan-Hellenic Council I can honestly say that Greek life has positively aided in my success as a leader.

I joined Greek life because I knew that becoming a part of this great organization could show me something about myself that I had yet to realize on my own. Before becoming a member I became well associated with those already apart of the organization. By building these relationships with theses members I was able to see the brotherhood bond they shared amongst each other and the positive characteristics they all had in common. These characteristic are ones that I too wanted to possess one day which is what motivated me to pursue membership.  I enjoy being Greek at northwest because it opens the doors to a greater network. Being Greek at Northwest also allows you to be responsible for events and other day to day activities that excite the college experience for others.

The organizations that fall under the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) are unique in their membership requirements and processes. Rather than hosting a formal membership recruitment process for all of the fraternities and sororities, each NPHC organization has an individual membership application, individual membership requirements and a specific intake process prescribed by their national headquarters. Intake may include interviews, group activities, and study of group values/traditions, with the involvement of both undergraduates and advisors. NPHC chapters enter the Intake process at various times of the academic year.
