At Georgia Tech, we have over 50 social fraternities and sororities that are divided into four governing councils. Within each council, chapters have the opportunity to collaborate, support one another, and give back to the greater community.
The main difference between each of the councils is how they faciliate the joining process for the chapters they oversee. The first step for any prospective member is to learn more about each of the councils in order to inform which recruitment/intake process you may want to participate in.
Below, you will learn about our four governing councils and how to get involved.
The Collegiate Panhellenic Council (CPC) is the unifying body for 8 National Panhellenic Conference sororities and 2 special interest sororities. The sorority community at Georgia Tech enhancesthe academic, social, and personal potential of each of its members. We believe in our women’s potential, we prepare our women for success as professionals, and we celebrate the unique and diverse gifts each of our women have to contribute to our global society. Check out our website to learn more about all of our chapters! Also, check out some additional information about CPC recruitment here.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing board for 30 inter/national fraternities. It acts similarly to a trade association of its fraternities. It is an organization founded and funded by its members, wholly member owned and member operated. The IFC participates in public relations activities involving advertising, education, donation, lobbying and publishing, but their main focus is collaboration between its fraternities and other campus organizations and setting a high standard for all fraternities. It also provides its members other services, such as producing conferences, networking, charitable events, and offering educational presentations and materials. Check out additional information about IFC recruitment here and view our IFC Recruitment Guide to learn more about our chapters.
The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) is the governing board for 4 culturally based fraternities and 3 culturally based sororities. The member organizations educate and serve the campus and community through cooperation, communication, and participation. Furthermore, the council strives to develop unity and provide support for member organizations. Check out our MGC Recruitment Guide to learn more about our chapters. MGC does not require registration to attend recruitment events, but we encourage you to come to our MGC Welcome Back Event August 26th!

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), Incorporated is composed of the historically African American international Greek-letter sororities and fraternities. NPHC promotes 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 affiliate organizations have pledged to devote their collective resources and services in an effort to enhance communities throughout the nation and world.
The NPHC at Georgia Tech is the governing body for all historically black fraternities and sororities on this campus. Eight of the nine organizations are represented on campus. Being a member of a fraternity or sorority is a great way to get involved, make new friends, and get the most from your college experience. NPHC members hold various campus positions, participate in service projects, hold educational seminars and even host social activities throughout the year. NPHC encourages the uplift of the African-American community on Georgia Tech’s campus and beyond. NPHC does not require registration to attend events.
