Fraternity & Sorority Life

Multicultural Greek Council

The Multicultural Greek Council, consisting of both fraternities and sororities, was established at the University of Michigan in 2002. With a focus on specific ethnicities and/or cultures or multiculturalism in general, these organizations are united to serve as a unique voice and advocate for their respective communities. Service and education are of primary importance, and social activities complete a well-rounded experience for these students.

Multicultural Greek Council Supports Interfraternity Council Vote

November 12, 2017

The Multicultural Greek Council 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 we uphold as a community.

2017 Multicultural Greek Council Charity Ball


The Multicultural Greek Council is hosting the 4th Annual MGC Charity Ball held on Thursday, March 9, 2016 from 7-9 pm in the Michigan League Ballroom. This year, as part of our initiative to give back to the surrounding community, we have chosen to collaborate with The Community Foundation of Greater Flint, to raise funds and awareness for the ongoing Flint Water Crisis. We believe that providing aid to the affected population is key to helping sustain the health and environment of our surrounding communities.
