The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) is composed of 12 diverse organizations — six fraternities and six sororities. Founded in 1997, during the emergence of a colorful multiculturalist movement within the Greek community, MGC is the newest of the six councils. Our organizations are diverse in membership, philanthropic focus, and cultural expression. However, we come together as a council to develop ourselves professionally, academically, and socially.
MGC is also dedicated to serving the surrounding community through cultural enrichment and civic engagement. Our organizations focus on the improvement of different areas of philanthropy, including education, homelessness, domestic violence, cancer research, and much more. We are also dedicated to brotherhood and sisterhood, community service, scholarship, and campus involvement. The Multicultural Greek Council is also home for organizations that represent their tradition and history through showcased performances such as stepping, strolling, and saluting.
