The goal of the Collaborative Multicultural Council is to establish a symbiotic relationship between the cultural fraternities and sororities. The council is comprised of 18 organizations: some that belong to the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO), some to the National Asian Pacific Islander American Panhellenic Association (NAPA), and some are local and/or regional organizations.
The Interfraternity Council is comprised of 8 men’s fraternities that belong to the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). The object of this organization is to promote the general welfare of all member fraternities; to encourage the development and growth of the IFC at UCR members; to provide educational, social, and service activities that will enhance member fraternities.
Panhellenic is comprised of seven women’s sororities that belong to the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC). The council focuses on developing and maintaining fraternity life and interfraternity relations at a high level of accomplishment. www.ucrpanhellenic.com/
