HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 6, 2012 – The High Point University National Pan-Hellenic Council was recently chartered by the national organization, National Pan-Hellenic Council Incorporated. The official charter allows for the council to be nationally recognized and connected.
On a national level, NPHC is made up of nine historically black Greek letter organizations, commonly known as the “Divine Nine.” There are currently four NPHC chapters established at HPU: Zeta Phi Beta, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta and Kappa Alpha Psi.
NPHC promotes interaction through forums, meetings and other mediums for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.
“High Point University is committed to providing education within a diverse environment,” said Teri Cugliari, director of Greek life. “NPHC organizations are an important part of the African American collegiate experience. Having a chartered council on our campus is a big step toward growing our NPHC community. I am excited to see this growth occur at HPU.”
