UNIVERSITY OF DENVER FRATERNITY & SORORITY COMMUNITIES


The University of Denver Fraternity & Sorority Community consists of 21 chapters. Each of the individual chapters is a member
of one of four councils- the Interfraternity Council, the Multicultural Greek Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and the
Panhellenic Association.

Multicultural Greek Council (MGC)

The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) at DU oversees four different organizations: Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc., Pi Lambda Chi Sorority, Inc., Sigma
Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc., Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity, Inc., and the Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. MGC strives to
promote awareness of cultural diversity within our community, and even with the greater community at large, beyond our university. We support the members of
our organizations, as well as other sororities through leadership, unity, education, service, networking, and more. MGC acts as a liaison between our different
councils, collaborating with our member organizations to spread cultural diversity, promote higher education, and foster leadership among our members.

Interfraternity Council (IFC)

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is a council established to oversee all the fraternal operations on campus associated with the North-American Interfraternity
Conference. Fraternities are founded upon values deemed worthy by the founding fathers, and the IFC helps encourage and grow the values of all fraternities.
The IFC here at DU represents eight fraternities, each founded on different values. With a rich history, DU fraternities, organizations of gentlemen agreeing on
similar values, are extremely diverse in aspects consisting of philanthropy, values, symbols, and many other characteristics. It is the IFCs job to encourage and
assist all fraternities on campus to grow as well as the men that make them up.

National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), unofficially known as the Divine Nine, is an organization consisting of nine historically African American
sororities and fraternities. Although this council is not officially established at the University of Denver, there are city-wide chapters, in which a few of our
students are members. The two organizations represented on the DU campus are Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Each
NPHC organization aims for good fellowship, academic excellence, and service through various service, economic, and educational activities, leadership, and
friendship.

Panhellenic Association (PHA)

The Panhellenic Association consists of all organizations affiliated with the National Panhellenic Council, which is one of the oldest and largest
womens membership organizations representing more than 4 million women at 655 college/university campuses and 4,500 local alumnae chapters
in the US and Canada. Here at DU, we have six PHA organizations. These organizations create long-lasting friendships that provide value far beyond
college years. Panhellenic women are involved on campus and represent the four pillars of DUs Greek Life: scholarship, leadership, friendship, and
service.

Collectively, these councils all come together under the Fraternity & Sorority Council to provide scholarship, leadership, friendship, and a
commitment to community service and philanthropic work.

Panhellenic Recruitment
There are two main ways to join our Panhellenic chapters: formal recruitment and continuous open bidding. Formal recruitment
takes place annually in the fall quarter, and all six of our National Panhellenic Conference chapters participate. It is a mutual
selection process, in which potential new members visit fewer chapters over the four days until the last day, when a bid for
membership may be extended. Registration is required for formal recruitment, and can be done so on the DU Fraternity &
Sorority Life website at www.dufsl.orgsync.com. Registration costs $30, and covers the cost of dinner during the recruitment
process, snacks, and other supplies necessary to run the program. During the recruitment process, potential new members
(PNMs) are given a recruitment counselor (a rho gamma) to assist in navigating the process and to serve as an unbiased mentor
along the way.
The other type of recruitment, continuous open bidding can occur in the fall, winter, or spring quarters, at the chapters
discretion. Not all chapters participate in continuous open bidding.
