Conditions Governing Access
This collection is open to researchers.
Greek organizations started during the early twentieth century on the downtown RIT campus. The original governing boards, Interfraternity Council for fraternities and Inter-Sorority Council for sororities, were later renamed the Panhellenic Council. These councils were overseen by the Greek Council. Upon the discretion of the Student Services Board Committee and the Housing Sub-Committee, it was decided that Greek organizations should be continued at the new RIT campus in Henrietta, NY.
At the Henrietta campus, each Greek organization is overseen by one of the following governing councils: College Panhellenic Council (CPC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC).
The Greek organization community is a part of the clubs and organizations that are offered by the Center for Campus Life and the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. Its role on campus is to unite diverse Greek organizations through various governing boards that help promote a sense of community and appreciation for all organizations.
