Vanderbilt University offers a number of organizations for student involvement and participation. These organizations span from volunteer groups to Greek letter fraternities and sororities. The Vanderbilt NPHC is the governing council for the 8 historically African American fraternities and sororities represented at Vanderbilt University. It is the mission of the National Pan-Hellenic Council to promote cooperation and harmony between member organizations and between members and other campus organizations in developing the best possible image for the Greek community through:
•A unifying body that promotes community service, campus involvement and success for each active organization.
•Mediating disputes between member organizations and those between member organizations and other campus organizations.
•Promoting positive inter-Greek relations among the Inter-Fraternity Council, Pan-Hellenic Council and the campus community
