The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) was founded in 2002. Many of the fraternities and sororities within MGC were chartered at Michigan in the 1970’s, 80’s, 90’s, and 2000’s, prior to the council’s formation. The council celebrates and promotes multiculturalism through programming and service housed in several racial, ethnic, and cultural communities. These organizations were nationally founded after many historically African American fraternities and sororities were founded with the purpose of creating safe, culturally-enriched spaces and to serve the needs of students representing multiple cultures on college campuses. At Michigan, MGC currently has fraternities and sororities that are historically (but not exclusively) Latinx, East Asian, South Asian, Arab, and Multicultural.

MGC Statement on Black Lives Matter

As the Multicultural Greek Council at the University of Michigan, we condemn all acts of violence and brutality against Black Americans and minority communities. We condemn all forms of racism, prejudice, and discrimination on campus and worldwide.

MGC Statement of Solidarity with Sexual Assault Survivors:

The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) at the University of Michigan and our member organizations were founded on a mission to develop leadership, encourage academic excellence, promote service, and provide a space for people of color to celebrate not only multiculturalism as a whole, but also our individual cultural backgrounds and identities. We hold all of our members to a high standard and expect every action to be carried out with intent, respect, and dignity in order to represent the core values that we uphold as a community.
