Multicultural Greek Council (MGC)
The National Multicultural Greek Council (NMGC) is an umbrella council for eleven multicultural fraternities and sororities (Greek Letter organizations) in universities across the United States. It was established in 1998 after a meeting of the original thirteen organizations. Multicultural fraternal organizations, as with other organizations, came to exist in order to address needs that had yet to be addressed by prior organizations: appreciating and unifying aspects of cultural diversity. Today, through scholarship and service, these organizations continue to work toward that vision of respecting and embracing each individual as a true individual – the foundation of unity.
The goals of the NMGC are as follows:
- To provide a forum that allows for the free exchange of ideas, programs, and services between its constituent fraternities and sororities
- To promote the awareness of multicultural diversity within collegiate institutions, their surrounding communities, and the greater community-at-large
- To support and promote the works of its member organizations.

Nine Distinguished Ladies founded Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Incorporated at Mercer University April 17th, 2017. These ladies came together to form the first Multicultural Greek Sorority on Mercer’s Campus. Our sisters take pride in being the first South Asian descent Sorority on campus. The Mercer University Colony upholds the principles of Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance while developing leaders from ladies at Mercer University and as professionals in their lives upon graduation. Alongside Delta Epsilon Psi, these two greek organizations formed the Multicultural Greek Council in the spring of 2017.
Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Incorporated is a historically South Asian based sorority. Founded on December 10, 1998, by ten Distinguished Ladies at St. John’s University in New York. Sigma Sigma Rho was the first sorority of its kind to be established on the East Coast. The name Sigma Sigma Rho was chosen for this organization because it substantially upholds our motives and goals, which are expressed in Sisterhood, Society, and Remembrance. Sigma Sigma Rho embodies unity amongst women of South Asian descent, strives to serve society on a small and large scale, and holds fast in instilling a sense of pride in the background of each individual sister. Sigma Sigma Rho is a sisterhood of women who have chosen this affiliation to achieve their desired personal development and to act for the betterment of local, regional, national and global communities through the efforts of a network of sisters nationwide. The organization defines itself with the saying: "Sisterhood is what we work for, Society is whom we give to, and Remembrance is what lies in our hearts."
Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Inc. provides service within the South Asian community on campus while promoting and enriching the appreciation of the morals and pillars that the organization is founded on. We develop women of strength and leadership through active participation within our respective communities, and through it, strengthen those traits of conduct, thought, and idealism which characterize the responsible members of this organization. Our goal is to provide a meaningful and worthwhile academic and social experience for all engaged in collegiate work and to cooperate with other organizations and societies in every manner consistent with our mutual purposes and those of the institutions at which chapters are located. Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority, Inc. is committed to our organization's National Philanthropy, Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention and our mission to develop strong, professional, progressive young women on every campus at which we are established.
