Overview and Membership

The Alabama United Greek Council (UGC) is the governing body for the eight special interest sororities and fraternities at The University of Alabama. Established on the UA campus in spring 2009, UGC exists to enable member organizations to share ideas and resources, promote mutual respect and equality, and provide a support network for students on campus.

Current Chapters:

  • Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-education business fraternity

How to Join

Each organization that encompasses the United Greek Council has an individual recruitment process. Depending upon the chapter, this process may be referred to as Recruitment, Membership Intake, or Rush.  Each chapter’s process for taking new members varies by their specific needs and (inter)national requirements.

UGC recruitment includes participation in fall and spring Get On Board Day. Chapters will also host tabling events and programs throughout the semester advertised through the SOURCE to recruit members.
