National Multicultural Greek Council
The National Multicultural Greek Council (NMGC) is an umbrella council for eleven multicultural fraternities and sororities (Greek Letter organizations) in universities across the United States. It was established in 1998 after a meeting of the original thirteen organizations. Multicultural fraternal organizations, as with other organizations, came to exist in order to address needs that had yet to be addressed by prior organizations: appreciating and unifying aspects of cultural diversity. Today, through scholarship and service, these organizations continue to work toward that vision of respecting and embracing each individual as a true individual – the foundation of unity.
The goals of the NMGC are as follows:
- To provide a forum that allows for the free exchange of ideas, programs, and services between its constituent fraternities and sororities
- To promote the awareness of multicultural diversity within collegiate institutions, their surrounding communities, and the greater community-at-large
- To support and promote the works of its member organizations.
Mercer's NMGC chapters include:
Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Inc.
NEW FOR FALL 2017
Mercer practices "delayed recruitment." This means that Greek organizations do not actively recruit during the first few weeks of the fall semester. All first year students, male and female, must abide by the contact policies in place during this time. Violations can result in the inability to join a chapter. For a full explanation of the policy please read our Delayed Recruitment Guidelines.
