Our Governing Councils
The University of Texas at Tyler is home to many inter/national fraternities and sororities. These fraternities and sororities are governed on campus by councils that are comprised of current active members in the represented groups. These councils are the College Panhellenic Council (CPC) and the Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and our Multicultural Greek Council (MGC).
Our Current Councils
