We have four councils here at University of Louisiana at Lafayette. They are the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Panhellenic Council (NPC), the MultiCultural Greek Council (MGC), and the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC).
2017 Excellence Standards
The Excellence Standards below serve to assist the University’s Greek community, as well as each chapter, in functioning at the most effective level possible. In addition, it also serves to help provide for the best possible experience for individual members.
These Standards serve to assess chapters on the minimum standards they should be meeting to be viable and successful members of the University’s Greek Community and their national organization. The Chapters are assessed by being either a 3, 4, or 5 Star Chapter. Having measured these standards, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Student Engagement and Leadership office can more accurately target and provide assistance to individual chapters in the specific areas where they are deficient.
In addition, it is through these standards that the University will expose the campus community, and the community at large to the achievements and quality of life of the Greek community. It will also serve as the tool by which we evaluate and recognize each chapter’s performance.
