The Inter-Cultural Greek Council

About:

The Inter-Cultural Greek Council (ICGC) represents JMU's cultural-based but not exclusive greek letter organizations, which include our Black Greek Letter Organizations, Latinx Fraternities and Sororities, and Asian-Interest Fraternities and Sororities. ICGC serves as the governing body for the 13 organizations we have chartered on this campus. These organizations have a rich history and legacy rooted in brotherhood/sisterhood, service, friendship, advocacy, and access. 

I.C.G.C. governs organizations from the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, Inc. (NALFO), and National APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander & Desi-American) Panhellenic Association (known as NAPA). Everyone is welcomed to pursue membership in these organizations.  You do not have to be from these cultures or Diaspora's to join, however you should have an interest in the organization and culture.

Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
