Fraternities & Sororities
The Greek community at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater consists of diversified men and women that also belong to different fraternities and sororities. Our Greek community provides its members with opportunities for growth in academic, leadership, service learning, and social arenas. Fraternity and sorority membership can offer the experience of a more well-rounded college experience.
At UW-Whitewater, we have three major governing Councils for Greek Life. The Interfraternity Council (IFC) represents fraternities (all male). The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) represents our historically African-American fraternities and sororities, and Panhellenic Association (PHC) represents sororities (all female). Each Council is a vital part of the Greek Community.
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
The InterFraternity Council (IFC) is the representative body for campus fraternities. Whereas each fraternity has its own individual goals, the IFC provides a general direction for the growth and betterment of all fraternities. For more information, visit the IFC Web site
National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)
An umbrella organization for nine historically black, international Greek lettered fraternities and sororities. Each of the nine NPHC organizations evolved during a period when African-Americans were being denied essential rights and privileges afforded other college students. It is referred to as the "Divine Nine". Currently, five of the nine NPHC groups exist at UW-Whitewater. For more information, visit NPHC Web site
Panhellenic Council (PHC)
The Panhellenic Council (PHC) is the coordinating and governing organization for sororities on campus. The council leadership works together to unite the sororities on the development of common goals and create a network of support for sorority chapters and their respective members.
