The National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) was established at Howard University in 1930 with the purpose of serving as the national coordinating body for the nine historically African-American sororities and fraternities. NPHC is comprised of 1.5 million members and is one of the largest black international organizations in the world. The objective of the Appalachian State University NPHC is the unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of the African American Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.

The purpose of NPHC is to provide service-oriented activities for the surrounding communities and the campus community,respectively; to serve as a liaison between member organizations and the University Administration; and to preside over disputes between member organizations. The member organizations of the NPHC conduct membership intake in the fall and spring semesters. Students must have an established grade point average to be eligible for membership.
