Welcome to the University of Washington Multicultural Greek Council!
The Multicultural Greek Council is home to 11 culturally based greek chapters at the University of Washington. Each house is committed to promoting academics, establishing strong community relations and increasing cultural awareness. As president, I am proud to say that our community has proven to be resilient and highly involved during these unpredictable times of COVID-19 and social movements. From adapting to new academic and daily life routines to continuous involvement in social justice initiatives (marginalized communities/movements such as BLM, hate on Asian Americans and more), our members mobilize and strive to embody excellence beyond higher education and into society.
Our community was established in 2002 to unite a diverse group of underrepresented chapters at the University of Washington, Seattle campus. Right now, our community thrives on providing opportunities for our members to be more educated, aware and help develop strong networking and interpersonal skills (which include leadership, advocacy, mentorship and more).
During my college experience as a first generation student, I have realized that college is not always about academics. I have learned that college can be utilized as a platform to develop one’s self as a leader and help advocate for marginalized communities. Greek Life has been a strong contributor to this journey. As a fraternity member, I can confidently say that I am surrounded by men and women who unconditionally support and uplift each other through the good times and the bad. I have seen members grow through the vast opportunities in service, academics, mentorship, leadership and many more. Despite my perspective, I know that there are many other unique success stories from our members.
I hope my message finds you well and that our website can provide you with sufficient information of who we are. If you have any questions feel free to contact us here.
We look forward to seeing you at our next event and that we are able to be a part of your husky experience. #GoDawgs

ABOUT MULTICULTURAL GREEK COUNCIL
Established in 2002, the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) aims to unify historically underrepresented chapters on the UW Seattle campus and continues to do so today. In the years since the establishment of the council, MGC is now home to 11 active Greek organizations that span across Asian, Latinx, and progressive interests. Built upon the three pillars of Community, Culture, and Academics, members of MGC continually display qualities symbolic of these, while representing the excellence of their respective chapters. As the council expands in size, the Multicultural Greek Council will continue to provide a safe and inclusive space for the expression of diverse opinions and meaningful social relationships. Greek life at UW is made up of four Greek Councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC), Panhellenic Association, National Panhellenic Association, and Multicultural Greek Council (MGC). Unlike traditional IFC or Panhellenic fraternities and sororities that mandate their membership to reside in furnished houses on Greek Row, MGC’s relatively young status at the University of Washington justifies why many chapters do not have permanent residences. Yet, through numerous social calendar events throughout the year, MGC organizations strive to promote an active campus presence while demonstrating the power of unity among multicultural Greeks with the wider Greek and UW community.
The Multicultural Greek Council strives to provide all of our members with a home-away-from-home. Through this, despite our diverse cultural backgrounds, the United Greek Council promotes a message of unity amongst our campus, while creating endless bonds between our organizations.
Through the celebration and promotion of cultures, the Multicultural Greek Council prides itself over the cultural pride that our members possess. Our council provides the support and resources that each organization needs in order to spread more cultural awareness on campus, while embracing the individuality of each individual.
The Multicultural Greek Council is composed of highly motivated students with countless dreams and passions that inspire the motivation to succeed. With this environment, each member of our council has the resources and support to aspire to reach beyond these goals and build a platform of networking and communication.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The Multicultural Greek Council is dedicated to promoting unity among minority Greek organizations at the University of Washington. We aim to provide a united governing body for these underrepresented cultural organizations on campus. MGC offers opportunities to build community relations, gain cultural awareness, and promote academic success.
