Multicultural Greek Council is the governing body of multicultural Greek organizations on campus. MGC includes fraternities and sororities. This includes the organizations nationally a part of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO), National Multi Cultural Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). NPHC is the national governing body of nine nationally recognized sororities and fraternities created as historically Black Greek organizations. MGC promotes brotherhood, sisterhood, leadership and community service.
During the Fall and Spring Semesters the Multicultural Greek Organizations will host individual recruitment events for potential new members to learn and get to know their organizations. Each of their events will focus on their principles like brotherhood/sisterhood and philanthropy/service.
Do I need to be a certain race/ethnicity to join MGC fraternities/sororities?
No, MGC chapters are open and welcoming across all cultural backgrounds. What is important to recognize is that an organization’s foundation may be rooted in a particular cultural experience that shapes the chapter’s mission and vision. Organizations that are multicultural in interest or experience also have differences in the way they function.
What is open and closed process for New Member Education in MGC organizations?
MGC chapters bring in a new class through a process that can be open (public process) or closed (private process). Through an open process, new members are allowed to disclose what organization they are in. A closed process is private and unknown to the greater community. When going through their new member education, new members are not to disclose what organization they are a part of until they cross (initiate). Some organizations have a presentation to present their new member class when they are fully crossed. They will then be able to speak about what organization they have joined. These new member processes consist of interviews, bonding activities, history lessons, and more.
What happens if I choose not to continue the new member process?
There is no obligation to complete the process. If there are any difficulties in the process or other concerns, please contact the SELC at 915 747-5670.
