The Divine Nine

The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) at Troy University welcomes you to the experience of Greek Life! NPHC is the governing body of the nine (9) largest historically African American Greek-letter fraternities and sororities, currently representing over 1.5 million members internationally. The organization boasts a diverse membership comprised of students, celebrities, corporate, political and community leaders. NPHC organizations are all unique with respect to other Greek-letter organizations in that they embrace a service-oriented philosophy and aim to promote the continuance of social action, political empowerment, and economic development. The National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations have a profound commitment to providing community service and to uplifting and promoting the general public welfare. These services are implemented within the local, national, and international community.

For potential Greeks, we hope our website gives you a look at our NPHC community and a better understanding of what being Greek involves. The NPHC organizations are commonly referred to as "The Divine Nine". At Troy University we have eight of the nine NPHC organizations. Our women's groups are Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta. Our men's groups are Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, and Phi Beta Sigma. Our groups will hold membership intake during the academic year and will put signs and posters up everywhere describing their requirements for membership. In the meantime, attend our events and get to know us.
