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.

- Pre-induction / orientation period (interest tea or meeting)

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.
