Since the University of Missouri's first fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi, was founded on campus in 1869, Mizzou's Greek organizations have simultaneously nurtured treasured traditions and adapted to the changing culture. With 58 chapters representing four councils, Greek Life now encompasses 27 percent of the student body and is more inclusive than ever before. Historically black (National Panhellenic Council) and multicultural (Multicultural Greek Council) organizations, as well as the LGBTQ-friendly Greek Allies, work together to create an environment that recognizes there is more than one way to be Greek. They invite diversity. They serve the community. They educate members about social issues. Sometimes they even eschew ornate formals and elaborate fundraising events in favor of barbecues, panel discussions, step shows and scholarship pageants. MU Greek Life in 2017 aims to ensure there's a place for all students to become part of a brotherhood and sisterhood that is truly unbreakable.
