The Inter-Greek Council (IGC)

The Inter-Greek Council (IGC) aims to promote harmonious relations among the member fraternity and sorority groups, and act as the central governing body for member Greek letter organizations. The IGC works to assure that fraternity and sorority groups follow appropriate standards, promote group development, create member education programs, and provide training on hazing prevention. The IGC looks to create programs that are educational, athletic, and community service oriented. IGC member organizations provide opportunities for members to serve the community, cultivate leadership skills, be engaged in campus life, encourage academic excellence, and work to help members reach their potential and act as positive and productive members of the academic community.

Along with the privileges of being a recognized fraternity or sorority, comes a responsibility to adhere to all MCLA policies and appropriate behavioral standards. Many of these policy and behavioral standards are listed in the Student Handbook. These policies and Commonwealth of Massachusetts and federal laws supersede the rules and procedures of fraternity and sorority chapters. Fraternity and sorority chapters that are unable to operate within these policies and/or laws or adhere to guidelines will lose or be denied recognition as an IGC member organization at MCLA.

The IGC prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender or gender identity, color, age, handicap, veteran status, marital status, sexual preference, or national origin. Specific regulations regarding recruitment, expansion, and Greek system policies are established and administered by the College and the IGC. Membership in fraternities and sororities is limited students who are in good standing with the College, and first semester students are not eligible to participate. 

Membership in and/or association with fraternities and sororities not affiliated with the IGC is strongly discouraged by the College. The Pi Upsilon Pi fraternity and the Beta Lambda sorority are the only affiliated Greek letter organizations at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.


MASSPIRG has had a chapter on MCLA’s campus for more than 3 decades and has been organizing on environmental and social issues since its inception. Because the campus is so small and the student body so interconnected, we enjoy running campaigns with other student groups on the issues most important to them. We are most known on campus for our environmental work and for voter registration.

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH)

The National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is the premier honor society for residential college students across the nation. The Rho Pi Sigma chapter of NRHH at MCLA is affiliated with NEACURH (North East Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls) and NACURH (National Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls). Through our affiliation with these two larger regional and national organizations we are able to share resources and establish connections with other chapters at other institutions across the nation. We pride ourselves on our two values of service and recognition and all of our initiatives and programs can be traced back to one or both of these values.

NRHH provides leadership experience and development opportunities to its members through involvement in service-based programs. The Diamond is the symbol for NRHH because of its inner strength and external beauty. The Diamond symbolizes the unique experiences that one obtains from living in the residence areas during their college years. Being inducted as a Diamond is a great honor because only the top 1% of students living on campus can join NRHH! We are known for our annual events such as the Faculty and Staff vs. Student Basketball Game, the Campus Center Takeover and Grilled Cheese Fundraisers.
