Each fraternal organization is a part of a council which governs the participating organizations. The governing councils at Illinois State include:
The Interfraternity Council at Illinois State University is comprised of 15 men's organizations. The Interfraternity Council participates in recruitment during the first month of each semester.
*The National Pan-Hellenic Council is inactive until further notice. All member organizations have been moved to other governing councils.*
The National Pan-Hellenic Council at Illinois State University is comprised of traditionally African-American fraternities and sororities. The NPHC organizations perform their membership intake at various times throughout the school year, depending upon the various organization preferences.
The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) at Illinois State University is comprised of 7 organizations. The MGC serves as a governing body that seeks to maintain high standards in the life of culturally-based Fraternities and Sororities by addressing, coordinating and developing strategic programming.

Most organizations of the Panhellenic Association participate in formal recruitment during the fall semester.
