Greek Council is the unifying Council of our four separate Greek councils. Its goal is to promote cross-council interactions and partnership while promoting the individual uniqueness of each council. It helps to promote and facilitate the committee selection for; Trick or Treat on Greek Street, Greek Leadership Challenge, and the Greek Week Committees. It also helps to facilitate the philanthropic and large scale community service events calendar for the Greek community. This calendar helps to minimize over-programming within the Greek community.
The mission of Greek Council at the University of Central Florida is to improve the Greek community through coordinating cross-council events, creating a culture of accountability, fostering effective communication, ensuring sufficient financial resources, bolstering campus awareness, and advocating for Greek Life. Greek Council strives to facilitate communication between the Greeks and the general student body.
Diversified Greek Council (DGC)
DGC prides itself in having a distinct type of recruitment process. We believe that because this is a lifetime commitment one needs ample time to choose the organization that would best suit them. This not only allows the organization a chance to get to know their potential members inside and out but also allows the potential members to get to know the organization's membership.
Meet The Greeks - Although the Diversified Greek Council does not have a formal recruitment period such as Rush, DGC does host an informational event that allows interested students to meet with the organizations that are a part of the council, as well as other invited organizations. This event is called "Meet The Greeks", and is held in both the Fall and Spring semesters. The event serves as an opportunity for students to witness some of the traditions of our organizations like stepping, strolling, and saluting as well as learn some facts about each organization on the council. While at the event each student will also have a chance to meet a large assortment of DGC members so that they can get a feel for which organization they feel they would best fit into.
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
Proud to be one of the most encompassing and diverse organizations on campus representing over 1300 fraternity men and 18 fraternities.
