History of the National Pan-Hellenic Council
On the national level, the NPHC was created as a result of a conference held in the late 1920s between two member organizations: Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. The positive results of that international conference convinced those involved that a greater need for cooperation and friendship between historically African-American Greek-lettered organizations was necessary for continued growth. Soon, this dream became a reality. The NPHC at the College of Charleston began soon after the appearance of the first African-American Greek organizations in the early 1970s.
NPHC Mission Statement

College of Charleston Panhellenic Creed
I believe that the privilege of membership brings the responsibility to do whatever I undertake; always remembering that leadership requires confidence tempered with humility and courage blended with tolerance.
We shall encourage each member to reach her fullest potential. Develop a stronger and more womanly character, to broaden the moral and intellectual life. To be womanly always; to be discouraged never.
We encourage social, intellectual, and moral growth. For hope, for strength, for life. Striving to esteem the inner man above culture, wealth and pedigree.
May we each day through love of those within our circle, learn to know and understand better those without our circle. Remembering always, that our foundation is LOVE THE GREATEST OF ALL THINGS.
