We are Penn Greeks!
With nearly 40 organizations and 3,000 members, our community offers a wide range of sororities, fraternities, and co-ed organizations to join.
We believe that when we work together, fraternities and sororities have the power to catalyze change and give voice to students. We uphold high standards of integrity and respect, promote inclusion, and provide service to make a difference in the community.

Houston Hall IGC Banner Unveiling
The photo above is a quick snapshot of the banners and guests in attendance at the event that took place in honoring the long history of our 11 active Intercultural Greek Council fraternities and sororities with a space and place to call their own on campus.
This initiative connects fraternities and sororities on campus to our colleagues at Penn. By volunteering for this opportunity, you will work closely with a specific fraternity or sorority for the academic year.
Please contact Jánae Tucker for more information and/or to express your interest in this program.
Statement of Philosophy
Our philosophy for an optimal fraternal experience is through an active, four-way partnership with:
- each chapter and its leadership;
- alumni/ae members through advisory boards and house corporations;
- inter/national headquarters;
- the University of Pennsylvania, through collaboration with its many offices and resources
This network is essential in providing maximum support to the undergraduate chapter members and leaders, and provides a strong, consistent message for all involved.
The University of Pennsylvania is an inclusive community in which we learn from the research, ideas, and experiences of other people on campus and around the world. We value open expression and the learning that comes from civil and rigorous debate. We also value and respect the dignity and worth of all members of our community. At times individuals or groups may believe they have experienced discrimination or bias or were negatively impacted by the actions of another member of the Penn community.
