In 1931, Alpha Phi Alpha and Phi Beta Sigma joined the Council. Sigma Gamma Rho joined in 1937, and Iota Phi Theta completed the list of member organizations in 1997. The stated purpose and mission of the organization in 1930 was as follows: “Unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek-letter collegiate fraternities and sororities, and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member organizations.” Early in 1937, the organization was incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois and became known as “The National Pan-Hellenic Council, Incorporated." At Mississippi State, there are currently 8 of the 9 member organizations, all governed by the MSU Chapter of NPHC. Each organization strives to interact with, inform, and serve the MSU and Starkville community, through forums, meetings, and events.
