Governing Councils and Respective Chapters
Put simply, a governing council serves as the primary oversight for their respective chapters, as well has the key source for their advocacy on campus. It is the responsibility of the governing councils to not only lead their chapters, but provide supportive opportunities for service, philanthropy, and education of members. Below you may find resources provided by each council, as well as their respective chapters which they oversee.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is a local chapter of the National Interfraternity Conference (NIC), which serves as a governing body for many social male fraternities on a(n) (Inter)National level. Local chapters of fraternities associated with the NIC are encouraged to join campus IFC Chapters for support. The S&T IFC Chapter aides its chapters through several service events, such as the Greek Service Day during the annual Greek Week, and the community-wide philanthropy Up Til Dawn. Moreover, they provide major educational opportunities through presentations and workshops from national, award-winning speakers for topics such as Hazing Prevention and Alcohol Awareness Education. More information about IFC Fraternity Recruitment may be found here: IFC Recruitment Brochure.
The IFC on our campus oversees the following Chapters:
The Panhellenic Council (PHC) is a local chapter of the National Panhellenic Conference(NPC), which serves as governing council for many social female fraternities, or sororities, on a National level. Local chapters of female fraternities/sororities associated with NPC are required to join campus PHC Chapters per national rules. The PHC aides by coordinating a significant portion of the Formal Recruitment Process, which occurs in August of every year (more information about Formal Recruitment may be located here: Panhellenic Brochure 2017). The S&T PHC greatly promotes inter-chapter coordination and cooperation through many sorority social events, partnering with all different types of campus organizations, and provides several great scholastic resources to the campus community through tutoring sessions for first and second-year courses.
The Panhellenic Chapters which are overseen by the PHC on our campus are:
The Greek Independent Board (GIB) is the newest addition to the governing councils housed on the Missouri S&T Campus. Overseeing (Inter)National social sororities which are not traditionally associated with either the local chapters of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), the GIB supports social sororities and provides programmatic support, as well as serving as the advocates for its member-chapter needs.
The chapters associated with the Greek Independent Board are:
The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is the national entity which is responsible for overseeing the "Divine Nine" social fraternities and sororities. These organizations are historically African-American organization, but have absolutely no membership bias when it comes to race. These "Divine Nine" organizations are comprised of 5 fraternities and 4 sororities, and undergo what is known as the "Membership Intake Process" which is very different from most recruitment-related processes. For more information on these organizations, you are encouraged to visit their national sites, which will be listed below.
