National Pan-Hellenic Council

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) serves as the governing body for the entire community of the historically African-American Greek letter organizations. Additionally, the council is in charge of coordinating events that expose the undergraduate student body to the history, mission and purpose of all the member organizations on the University of Mississippi campus. The council also sponsors events that promote unity among the membership of the different organizations.

The University of Mississippi is proud to host all nine NPHC fraternities and sororities, also known as the Divine Nine. Since Omega Psi Phi joined our campus in 1973, NPHC chapters have been providing a quality experience to men and women here at Ole Miss.


The National Pan-Hellenic Council was formed at Howard University so that the 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.
