NPHC Students at IMPACT

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is the governing body for the historically African-American fraternities and sororities at College of Charleston. It is home to the NPHC sororities and fraternities currently at the College. The NPHC is also affiliated with national governing body of all nine NPHC organizations. For more information regarding the national NPHC, visit their website at www.nphchq.org.

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-lettered organizations in the early 1970s.

NPHC MISSION STATEMENT

The College of Charleston's National Pan-Hellenic Council is designed to promote student success in social and academic endeavors. Each member organization monitors its students to create academic excellence and also to stimulate community involvement. As members of NPHC organizations, students pursue lofty aspirations and ideals that will create leadership skills essential for lifelong achievement.

The NPHC is also designed promote well-being between each particular organization. This group was formed in order to establish diplomacy, respect and cooperation among all organizations involved. Each year, the NPHC strives to become a unified and strengthened family.
