- The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) consists of 10 non-residential chapters founded as culturally-based organizations to support common heritages and history. Students do not need to identify as part of a specific culture to join an MGC chapter. Those interested should visit the Multicultural Greek Council page to learn more about the chapters represented in the council, their leadership, and governing documents.
- The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) consists of 2 non-residential chapters who identify as part of the nine traditional and historically African American Greek lettered fraternities and sororities whose mission is to work towards unanimity of thought and action as far as possible in the conduct of Greek letter collegiate fraternities and sororities. Students interested in joining an NPHC organization should visit the National Pan-Hellenic Council page or contact the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life to learn more.
- The Panhellenic Association (PHA) consists of 13 chapters, including residential and non-residential sororities. Students interested in joining a Panhellenic sorority should visit the Panhellenic Association page to learn more about their leadership team, mission and creed, and governing documents.
In terms of education for new members, many chapters require their new members to participate in alcohol programming through chapter-specific training or online modules such as GreekLife.edu.
More widely, alcohol use is addressed through educational programs offered to chapters and individual members, often times through a partnership with Health Education and Prevention Services in the CSU Health Network. Fraternities and sororities are required to obtain approval from their governing council (led by fellow fraternity and sorority members) prior to any event where alcohol is served and are required to follow federal and state law, the Colorado State University Student Conduct Code expectations, and their (inter)national organization’s policies. Chapters are restricted from using chapter funds to purchase alcohol.
Lastly, there is a policy requiring all fraternity and sorority houses/facilities to remain alcohol-free.
