Multicultural Greek Council 

 2014 Multicultural Greek Council The 2014 MGC Executive Board 


The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) at the University of Nebraska – Kearney is the governing body of four multicultural Greek organizations: one fraternity and three sororities. The mission of the MGC is to provide a forum that allows for the exchange of ideas, programs, and services between its member fraternities and sororities; to promote the awareness of multicultural diversity at the University of Nebraska – Kearney, the surrounding community, and to support the works of its member organizations. For additional information, contact Daniel Jaimes, Multicultural Greek Council President, via email at: jaimesd2@lopers.unk.edu.

 

Benefits of Membership

 

Brother and Sisterhood

MGC organizations focus on leadership, community service, and multicultural issues. The members of MGC organizations strive to celebrate the diversity that members bring to each Greek fraternity or sorority. Becoming involved in a multicultural fraternal organization allows you to make a large campus smaller, connect with brothers and sisters with similar values and goals, as well as, pursue interests and activities that are meaningful to you. Often, having organization on your resume can provide interesting talking points during interviews for potential internships and employment.
 

Campus Involvement

Every Multicultural Greek Council member is highly encouraged to be involved in organizations outside their chapter. MGC members hold many leadership positions outside of fraternity and sorority life. Furthermore, MGC members are involved in Order of Omega, Student Diplomats, Student Government, the Office of Multicultural Affairs Council, intramural sports, and many more organizations and leadership positions. 

 

Recruitment

Although there is no formal recruitment cycle, the MGC chapters host "informational sessions" that are advertised on campus and are open to anyone interested in learning more about their respective organization.  After the informational, members utilize a process known as "intake" - this process differs for each group and each group typically enters the intake process at different times of the academic year. Intake usually involves the participation of the chapter and occurs with the oversight of local alumni volunteers.  Intake may include interviews, group activities, and study of organizational values and history. While these organizations consist primarily of multicultural students, they are open to all University of Nebraska – Kearney students.
