Chapters

With nearly forty unique organizations, we are confident that students can find a sense of belonging within our fraternity and sorority community. These chapters are governed by student-led boards called councils. At BGSU, we have four different councils that provide governance, accountability, educational opportunities, and structure for our chapters: the College Panhellenic Conference (CPC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) or sometimes referred to as the Divine Nine), and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC).

Interfraternity Council Fraternities

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the coordinating and governing body for its member chapters. The IFC community has over 700 active men in 17 member fraternities.The mission of the Interfraternity Council at BGSU is to obtain and continuously build men who are committed to upholding and representing the values of academic excellence, civic engagement, leadership, accountability to shared standards, and positive relations within the community. The IFC establishes and coordinates all recruitment activities, promotes, and supervises academic achievement, governs the actions of its member chapters, and promotes community service projects throughout the year and establishes bonds and maintains a common ground with all fraternities. It is the goal of all members of the Interfraternity Council of Bowling Green State University to be positive leaders on campus.

Multicultural Greek Council Fraternities and Sororities

At Bowling Green State University, the Multicultural Greek Council is a place for our organizations with a spotlight on equality, diversity, and progress to gather and lead the efforts for the campus. These organizations promote the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, immigrants and refugees, LatinX and Hispanic populations, and many more. Together, they provide hands-on service to these causes and bring education to our fraternity and sorority community about pressing issues and crises.

National Pan-Hellenic Council Sororities and Fraternities

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is an umbrella organization for nine historically black, inter/national Greek-lettered organizations that evolved during a period when African-Americans were being denied essential rights and privileges afforded to other college students. Today, the primary purpose and focus of member organizations remains community awareness and action through educational, economic, and cultural service activities. The individual member is also expected to align with a graduate and/or alumni chapter, following graduation from college to perpetuate the purpose of the council and their individual organizations.
