The History of Mizzou’s Greek Community

Greek Life at the University of Missouri provides an incredible opportunity to enhance the collegiate experience. Thirty years after the University opened, the Missouri Alpha Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi was founded, thus marking the beginning of a Greek community rich with tradition on Mizzou’s campus. In the latter part of 1870, two other fraternities of the joined the University, Zeta Phi, which had its origin in the university, and Phi Delta Theta. Five years later on On April 2, 1875, the Theta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma became the first female Greek letter fraternity on campus. Despite Greek organizations beginning to grow, the University barred all secret societies in 1880. After seven years, the University permitted fraternities and sororities to return. Since that time the Greek community at Mizzou has continued to grow and flourish.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council at the University of Missouri can be traced back to the founding of the Delta Omega Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity on March 18, 1961. The Delta Omega Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi is debatably recognized as the first African-American based organization established on the campus of the University of Missouri. All of the Divine Nine have charters at the University of Missouri. Currently, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. are all active chapters at the University of Missouri.

In 2006, the Multicultural Greek Council was founded with four organizations on campus, Alpha Phi Gamma National Sorority, Inc., Gamma Rho Lambda National Sorority, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi, and Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. The council was disbanded in 2011 and was reestablished in fall 2015. Currently, Alpha Phi Gamma National Sorority, Inc., Delta Xi Nu Multicultural Sorority, Inc., Kappa Pi Beta Fraternity, Inc., Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. and Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority, Inc. are active on campus.

Currently, the Greek community at Mizzou is home to 55 chapters, representing chapters from the North-American Interfraternity Conference, National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc., Multicultural Greek Council and the National Panhellenic Conference.
