The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) at the University of New Orleans is made up of the members of the 7 historically black fraternities and sororities on the campus. The council’s purpose is to promote unity and expose members to the “service for life” philosophy and foster leadership development and scholarship. Furthermore, NPHC provides a forum for participation and interaction among the members of affiliate organizations and the organizations themselves.

NPHC at UNOMembership Intake

NPHC organizations bring in new members through a process called Membership Intake. Generally, students must have completed at least 12 semester hours at UNO (though some groups require more) and be in good academic standing to be eligible for membership in an NPHC organization. Each organization sets an individual timetable as to when it will conduct Intake according to their national and local policies.

Purpose of NPHC Plots

Many cornerstones of life for black Greek organizations can be traced to the days of slavery. On September 6,1865, Thaddeus Stephens, a Pennsylvania Congressman urged that land confiscated from the Confederacy be diveded into 40-acre plots for the newly freed slaves. Over the years, NPHC organizations have developed plots on college campuses and treated them as almost sacred grounds. The largest of the symbols of Black fraternalism on college campuses is the plot. A plot symbolically represents the organization, and appears in various forms. On the University of New Orleans Campus the plots are structures built with bricks and concrete that represents the organization & of benches painted in the organization's colors. For campuses with plots, especially historically Black colleges, the plot plays a central role in the culture of Black fraternities and sororities as a meeting location.
