Recruitment

Recruitment offers an opportunity to meet chapter members and peers while learning what each organization has to offer. Throughout the process, Council Ambassadors/Recruitment Guides of Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils will answer all questions that may arise while participating in recruitment. Participating in the recruitment process does not require a person to join a chapter, but does provide them an opportunity to explore and learn about the campus and Greek community.

New members of National Pan-Hellenic Council and Multicultural Greek Council are selected by member organizations through the Member Intake Process (MIP) or or New Member Education Process (NME) based on specific qualifications and criteria. NPHC chapters are guided by membership identification and selection standards that promote the development of the individual and what the individual can bring to the respective chapter.
