Social fraternities and sororities must be registered as a student organization and be members of one of the governing councils below. Student Conduct and Community Responsibilities, a unit of the Dean of Students Office, maintains records on the discipline status of registered student organizations.
The National Pan-Hellenic Council serves as the coordinating council for the historically African American Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities known as the "Divine Nine." The organization's mission is to create strong bonds among underrepresented students, promote inclusion in the Illinois State University community, and enhance the quality of the Black collegiate experience. This will be accomplished by promoting excellence through philanthropy, service, scholarship, and quality events to inspire future leaders.
College Panhellenic Council (CPC) is the local organization of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), serving as the umbrella group for all member sororities. CPC strives to maintain positive relationships among member chapters through the coordination of recruitment; maintenance of high social and moral standards; promotion of scholarship, philanthropy, and community engagement; and to serve as a forum for discussing questions of mutual interest and concern.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the local organization of the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), serving as the governing council for all member chapters. IFC guides, supports, and develops the fraternity community through coordination of recruitment; maintenance of high social and moral standards; community programming; promotion of scholarship, philanthropy, and community engagement; and as a forum for discussing questions of mutual interest and concern.
"Strength through unity" is our motto.
The United Greek Council (UGC) at Illinois State University 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. We also seek to unify organizations within UGC by promoting higher education, providing community service opportunities, and enhancing leadership abilities. Furthermore, the UGC would serve as a liaison between other Greek councils, the University student body, and the administration and the surrounding community, thus meeting our individual and collective needs, voicing our concerns, and improving campus life.
