National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council is composed of the nine historically African American Greek lettered fraternities and sororities. The organizations are popularly known as the Divine Nine. Established when the United States was racially segregated, the organizations no longer restrict membership but continue to commemorate and celebrate their origins in African American history and culture. Planning is currently underway for an NPHC Garden, in the courtyard of the Student and Academic Service Building. The Garden, intended to evoke traditional fraternity and sorority "plots" at historically-black universities, will be a gathering space for members as well as the entire campus community. The NPHC organizations with chapters at Carolina are listed below with charter date:
