National Pan-Hellenic Council
The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations are historically African-American; however, they are open to men and women of all races.
The UT Dallas chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council was chartered on Nov. 11, 2001. Membership in an NPHC organization is selective and is a life-long commitment that continues long after your collegiate career. NPHC has graduate/alumni chapters nationwide that students may affiliate with upon graduating.
Interest meetings for each organization vary throughout the fall and spring semester.
How To Join
NPHC fraternities and sororities recruit throughout the year and membership requirements and programs vary by organization. The process referred to as “intake” is highly regulated by each national organization.
Each organization has different requirements for their membership intake process. Each group will host an interest meeting either in the fall or spring semester where a student can officially express their interest and receive details about what is required to attain membership with their group.
At the beginning of each semester, NPHC will sponsor “Showcase,” a program to inform prospective members about each individual organization. During this program, students receive a brief overview of NPHC and each of its member groups and have the opportunity to interact with the different members.
