The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) was founded on June 8, 2009 to serve as the collegiate governing body of the culturally based fraternities and sororities at the UC Irvine campus. These culturally based chapters are made up of National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), Latino, Latina, Asian, Armenian, and Multicultural fraternities and sororities. Some of the MGC chapters are unique to the Irvine campus or the state of California, while others are nationwide. The Multicultural Greek organizations come together to foster and support the multicultural community on campus through collaboration, leadership, and involvement.
