Learn more about the history of the MGC at the University of Iowa!

The University of Iowa is proud to be home to the founding of Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity, Inc. in 1986 and to Sigma Lambda Gamma Sorority, Inc. in 1990. The Alpha Chapters of both of these organizations continue to be thriving organizations within the University of Iowa Fraternity & Sorority Community. In 2009, members of Sigma Lambda Beta and Sigma Lambda Gamma began work on the creation of the fourth governing council at Iowa. On February 16, 2010, the Multicultural Greek Council was officially established. 

The purpose of the Multicultural Greek Council shall be to serve all MGC organizations as a support group and governing body in their events and communities, to promote multicultural awareness, and to improve relations among all campus fraternities and sororities. The MGC defines "cultural" to include race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation.
