What is the Multicultural Greek Council?

The purpose of the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) is to provide a council for Greek organizations that contribute specifically to diversity and inclusion on RIT campus. The MGC serves as the governing body and network culturally based Greek organizations to create and maintain high standards in the life of Fraternities and Sororities. The council addresses, coordinates, and develops strategic action plans to unify affiliations, promote higher education, provide community service, enhance leadership and serves as a liaison between the MGC and the University student body, and administration; thereby improving the campus climate. The MGC emphasizes on spreading cultural awareness to ensure diversity and unity among the Greek system at RIT.
