National Pan-Hellenic Council

"The council's purpose is to promote unity and expose members to the "service for life" philosophy and foster leadership development and scholarship.  Furthermore, the National Pan-Hellenic Council provides a forum for participation and interaction the members of affiliate organizations and the organizations themselves.  It provides for a stronger unified voice and a stronger unified body." (Taken from the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. website -

Commonly referred to as the "Divine Nine," the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. is comprised of nine historically African American fraternities and sororities.  During an era when African Americans were denied rights and privileges afforded to others and faced racial isolation and social barriers, these organizations provided an opportunity for African American students on college campuses to come together with other students who shared common goals and ideals. 

Goals of the W&M NPHC
  • To provide a forum for members of the historically African American fraternities and sororities at the College to discuss relevant issues.
  • To increase awareness at the College of the purpose, programs, and initiatives of the NPHC and its affiliate member organizations.
