The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. was formed on May 10, 1930 as an umbrella organization for the nine historically African-American, historically significant Greek-lettered fraternities and sororities. Four of the nine members are currently represented here at UCLA. The stated purpose and mission of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. in 1930, and remains today is "Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations."
Each of the nine NPHC members evolved during a period when African Americans were being denied essential rights and privileges afforded others. Racial isolation on predominantly white campuses and social barriers of class on all campuses created a need for African Americans to align themselves with other individuals sharing common goals and ideals. With the realization of such a need, the African American (Black) Greek-lettered organization movement took on the personae of a have and outlet, which could foster brotherhood and sisterhood in the pursuit to bring about social change through the development of social programs that would create positive change for Blacks and the country. Today the need remains the same.
Thank you for your continued love and support, and welcome to our page!
