National Pan-Hellenic Council is chartered at Penn State

June, 1989

A chapter of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) was chartered at Penn State to formally serve as the governing body of the four African American fraternities and four African American sororities at the University. 

The NPHC replaced the Black Greek Council, which had not been recognized by the University. Donna Carter and Brian Swain served as the original co-chairs of the Council.
