Welcome to West Virginia University! We are excited you are interested in being a part of the WVU Fraternity and Sorority community. The first step in joining a fraternity or sorority is determining which of the three governing councils at WVU is right for you. Each council has a unique makeup, programs, and recruitment process, so explore each council below to determine which council you are interested in.
National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc.
The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. is the governing council for the nine historically African American sororities and fraternities, known as the Divine Nine. West Virginia University is proud to have five (5) active chapters of the nine international organizations of NPHC. The Council promotes academic excellence, unity, service within the community, and strong bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood.
The stated purpose and mission of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. is “Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek-letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.”
The Panhellenic Association serves as the governing body for the eight (8) inter/national sororities at West Virginia University affiliated with the National Panhellenic Conference, and one national engineering and STEM social/professional sorority, who is an associate member of the WVU Panhellenic Association. Panhellenic sororities offer educational programs, community service projects, leadership training, social functions, and brotherhood to last through college and beyond.

the Panhellenic Council. The Council works to unite sorority women to focus on
common goals and to create a network of support by providing interactive
programs and activities for sorority women and all WVU students.
