What we do

NPHC promotes social awareness, unity, and interaction through forums, meetings, and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.


The National Pan-Hellenic Council was formed at Howard University in Washington D.C. so that black Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities could form a united body. Additionally, this council served as a forum to allow these Greek organizations to consider and address problems of mutual interest.

Locally, NPHC was chartered at Clemson on January 30, 1998, more than twenty years after the first NPHC organization was chartered on Clemson's campus:
