New members of NPHC are selected by member organizations through the Member Intake Process (MIP) based on specific qualifications and criteria. On our campus, MIP may not last longer than six weeks. NPHC chapters are guided by membership identification and selection standards that promote the development of effective chapters.

  • MIP Components
    • Pre-induction / orientation period (interest tea or meeting)
    • Final induction ceremony (initiation)
    • Education program

The University of Memphis requires all prospective members to attend an Intake Seminar held in September and January of each semester. This seminar is designed to educate new members about joining NPHC organizations, anti-hazing policies on all levels (local, state, and nationals), the new intake membership process, application and interview tips, plus much, much more.

For more information on Intake Seminars, please call (901) 678-8679.

What is the best part of Greek life at Memphis?

"The best part of Greek Life at Memphis is that it is not what I thought Greek Life was going to be. I was the guy in high school that vowed to never join a fraternity, but the chapters here at the U of M are different. Chapters are focusing on member development and concerning themselves with making better men. It is the ultimate way to make the college experience, but to better yourself in a positive way at the same time."

Derek Miller, Senior
Interfraternity Council
