About

Norfolk State Greek Councils

The National Pan-Hellenic Council

Purpose is to create and maintain high standard in the life of fraternities and sororities; to perpetuate constructive fraternity and sorority relationships; to foster an understanding of the structure and method of operation among the affiliate organizations; to address, coordinate, and develop action strategies on matters of mutual concern to affiliate organizations; and to serve as the conduit for such action plans as may be developed.

The Council of Independent Organizations

Purpose is to serve as a statement of unity and a collective voice among independent Greek Letter organizations on the campus of the Norfolk State University. It is hoped that the CIO would come to represent not only independent African American based fraternal/sorority organizations, but all fraternal/sorority organizations on the campus of Norfolk State University.
