Student Involvement Office
The National Pan-Hellenic Council promotes, supports, and represents historically African American fraternities and sororities. Ohio Wesleyan has long standing relationships with several National Pan-Hellenic Council member organizations. However if no current chapter exists at OWU, the Fraternity and Sorority Life office can put students in contact with members of the following organizations upon request:
While these organizations are non-residential at OWU, the University partners with Otterbein University and Capital University to encourage membership growth and breadth through Alumni Chapters and City-wide organizations. These organizations promote leadership, social, service, and philanthropic opportunities both during and beyond the collegiate experience.
