NPHC Citywide Chapters

We also partner with citywide National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) organizations, known as The Divine Nine. The National Pan-Hellenic Council is an umbrella council composed of historically Black fraternities and sororities.

Citywide NPHC chapters are identified as regional chapters made up of two or more participating colleges and/or universities. Currently, we partner with three of the nine NPHC organizations: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated.

Fraternity and Sorority Advisers

Trinity's fraternities and sororities are self-governed, though each organization selects alumni advisers and most choose a faculty or staff adviser with whom it collaborates throughout the year.

The faculty, staff, and alumni advisers who step up to help guide, mentor, and assist the fraternities and sororities are an asset to the community. Each is committed to working with students, fellow alumni, and representatives of the University.

Adviser Resources

Advisers can access resources and become familiar with relevant campus procedures and policies via the Fraternity and Sorority Life Alumni Adviser Resource Manual (PDF).
