Everything You Need to Know
Iowa State University is home to eight of the nine NPHC Organizations, which are often called the "Divine Nine." This is a collaborative organization of historically African-American international Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities. Each organization was established on the tenets of brotherhood/sisterhood, high scholarship, leadership and service to others. ISU NPHC is home to two fraternities and all four sororities. The National Pan-Hellenic Council elects peers to serve in leadership roles to further the vision and mission of the NPHC organizations. These leaders promote scholarship, leadership and service to others through collaborative events, cultural awareness and promote other organizations and their events in their chapter, along with promoting University events. Collaboration with the Collegiate Panhellenic Council, Interfraternity Council and Multicultural Greek Council is an important way to promote the values and history of NPHC.
