Multicultural Greek Council

Historically Black Greek Letter Organizations (HBGLOs) provide leadership opportunities and support for students interested in committing to lifelong membership under the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC).

Created in 1930, NPHC serves as the umbrella organization for the 'divine nine' organizations.  The purpose of the NPHC is to promote "unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider the problems of mutual interest to its member organizations".

Similar to NPHC, Washington and Lee's Multicultural Greek Council promotes unity amongst the four HBGLOs on our campus.  The MGC encourages good scholarship, participation in fellowship, support for character development, and continued service within the community.  Through campus and community partnerships the MGC and the individual HBGLOs seek to provide awareness and offer educational opportunities that lead to a positive collegiate experience.

The Membership Intake Process (MIP) is very different than the experience of recruitment through the Interfraternity or Panhellenic system.  If you are interested in possible membership you may contact Megan Schneider for additional information.  Please note that the minimum GPA requirement in order to be eligible for MIP varies by chapter:

  • Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity -- 2.5
  • Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority -- 2.3
  • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority -- 2.75
  • Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity -- 2.5
