Ohio University's Sorority & Fraternity Life system is made up of four governing councils, all overseen by the Sorority & Fraternity Life Office in the Campus Involvement Center.

Interfraternity Council (IFC):  Designed to guide and support the fifteen member fraternities on campus in regards to academics, recruitment and community service. The council provides opportunities for fraternities, and their members, to become productive members of the Ohio University community.

Multicultural Greek Council (MGC):  Serves to represent and unite the two active Ohio University MGC chapters on campus: 1 co-ed Latino group and 1 Latina sorority. MGC seeks to empower members and to form a more perfect alliance among fraternal organizations at Ohio University.


National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC):  Serves the seven traditionally African-American organizations on campus (3 fraternities, 3 sororities) who work together to achieve educational, social, economic, and political power. NPHC promotes interactions for the exchange of information and engages in cooperative programming and initiatives through various activities and functions.
