National Pan-Hellenic Council

The purpose of the UNLV National Pan-Hellenic Council is to create and maintain high standards in the life of fraternities and sororities by coordinating and developing community service projects, educational programming, and the promotion of student leadership.

Currently at UNLV we have representation from all 9 of the NPHC organizations:

The National Pan-Hellenic Council was organized May 10, 1930, at Howard University during a time when African-American students were deprived of the civil liberties other students were given. The national council is composed of the nine historically black fraternities and sororities:

  • Alpha Phi Alpha
  • Alpha Kappa Alpha
  • Kappa Alpha Psi
  • Omega Psi Phi
  • Delta Sigma Theta
  • Phi Beta Sigma
  • Zeta Phi Beta
  • Sigma Gamma Rho
  • Iota Phi Theta

Collectively, these fraternities and sorority are known as the "Divine Nine."

The purpose of the national council 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.
