Great News! The Office of Sorority & Fraternity Life was just awarded a grant from the NKU Innovation Challenge for our proposal to create National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) plots on campus. Although this grant helps fund construction, we still need help completely funding construction and ongoing maintenance.
We are calling on our NPHC alumni and friends to help us make a lasting impact on campus by making a gift to support our project.
What are plots?
For over 50 years, universities across the United States have established the tradition of providing gathering spaces, referred to as “plots” that are designed to represent each historically black Greek-lettered organization within the NPHC, while giving alumni and current members an area for reflection, celebration, and gathering.
The NPHC utilizes plots as a representation of their belonging to campuses across the nation and can be traced to the division of Confederate land after the end of the Civil War.
These plots are used to create a positive environment for NPHC to promote sororities and fraternities while educating students about the history of these diverse organizations.
Why are plots important to NKU?
NKU is a predominantly white university and the development of plots grants NPHC organizations the opportunity to celebrate their achievements while paying homage to the traditions and history of their sorority or fraternity.
These plots will provide an environment on NKU's campus that will foster a sense of pride for past, present, and future members of the NPHC community.
How can you help?
Support the construction and maintenance of NPHC plots on Northern Kentucky University's campus by making your best gift today. While gifts of any size will make an impact on this project, donors who give $75 or more will be eligible to have personalized engraved bricks placed at the site of the NPHC plots.
