The Multicultural Greek Council serves as the self-governing body for the 23 culturally-based fraternities and sororities at the University of California Irvine. The Multicultural Greek Council consists of 8 Executive Board Members that help to oversee the 23 fraternities & sororities under their governance. The executive board consists of sorority and fraternity members who are elected into their positions by the MGC affiliated chapters. Every Monday of the academic year the executive board and chapter delegates convene for formal MGC meeting at 5pm via ZOOM.
UC Irvine has one of the largest multicultural fraternity and sorority communities in higher education. It is comprised of Latino/Latina, Armenian, Asian, and multicultural fraternities and sororities. Some chapters are represented nationwide, others have chapters only in California, and some chapters are unique just to UC Irvine. The chapters recruit throughout the entire year. Some chapters will have booths out on ring road while others will hold informational events for interested students during in-person quarters.
Fall 2020 Recruitment Dates: September 28th - October 9th
Fraternities and sororities at UC Irvine are able to link to the UCI Sorority & Fraternity Life website. UC Irvine does not endorse or monitor individual chapter's websites for content. The ability to access individual chapter websites through UC Irvine's website is NOT an adoption by UC Irvine of any individual chapter's acts inconsistent with the policies of UCI.

Recognition of Fraternities & Sororities
The names of the fraternities & sororities listed on this page are the only chapters recognized at UC Irvine. There are honor societies and other professional organizations that use greek letters, but they are not recognized as a fraternity or sorority. Be aware of any group that says they are a fraternity or sorority but is not listed on this page or is not registered with the Student Life & Leadership Office. Unrecognized groups are also considered underground groups due to the fact that their activities are done in secret.
