Northeastern University is home to four governing councils: the Interfraternity Council, the Multicultural Greek Council, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and the Panhellenic Council. Each chapter in the community is a member of one of the four governing councils. Elected leaders for each council serve the community and are responsible for establishing and implementing policies or bylaws, creating and facilitating community-wide events, and providing programming and leadership development to member chapters. You can learn more about each council below. To learn more about recruitment and intake practices or to contact the Council Presidents, you can find updated contact information on the Contact Us page.
