Welcome to the Multicultural Greek Council
The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) was established at Purdue University in 2003 to serve as a governing body; to create and maintain high standards in the life of culturally-based Fraternities and Sororities by addressing, managing and creating strategic programming; to unify organizations involved in MGC; and to have a positive relationship between MGC, other fraternity/sorority councils, the university student body and administration, thus improving campus life.
Expressing Interest and Joining an Organization:
Many of our MGC organizations conduct intake in order to bring in new members to the organizations but there are also several who host more open recruitment practices. The best way to know is to reach out to a member of the organization and ask what their process looks like. MGC organizations that do intake appreciate discretion prior to and during the intake process. The organizations host events throughout the year to be able to get to know students. If a student has interest in possibly joining an organization it is best to first do some research. Follow the link on this page to the chapters page where you can find information about all of the MGC organizations on a national level. After you find an organization that fits well with your values, reach out directly to a member of an organization and set up a time to meet one on one to talk about the possibility of joining. All MGC organizations have minimum standards for GPA which must be met. To share your academic information please complete a PNM Grade Release form. If the members feel that it would be a good fit there is an application process through the inter/national office. Once approved you will need to complete a membership form. After that membership intake is conducted in coordination with the graduate chapter. All intake processes must be in compliance with national standards. All MGC organizations have policies against hazing and Purdue University does not tolerate such actions. Once your process is complete you will be a fully recognized member of the organization. At this time many of our organizations host neophyte presentations. The regulations for neophyte presentations can be found on the Health, Safety and Risk Management Page.
