The Office of Sorority & Fraternity Life at Northern Kentucky University was just awarded a grant from the NKU Innovation Challenge for their proposal to create National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) plots on campus.
This is a HUGE deal for the past, present and future of Black fraternities and sororities on their campus.
According to a fundraising page created by students and faculty, although this grant helps fund construction, they are still looking for more money to make this happen. The NPHC is looking to raise $5,000 by March 8th, 2020.
“Given that NKU is a predominantly white institution, it is imperative that Black organizations are able to have sufficient and eye-catching representation for prospective and incoming students,” Sierra Blair the president of the Alpha Rho Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta on campus stated.
“The implementation of plots would tremendously benefit Alpha Rho as a chapter in addition to The National Pan-Hellenic Council of Black Greek Letter Organizations as a whole by displaying our presence on campus. Further, plots would bring students who are unaware and/or uneducated on what NPHC organizations represent, and allow us the chance to proudly showcase our history and culture to the community, conceivably allowing for others to reach out to us and learn more.”
The students and faculty have already raised $3,386 of their $5,000 goal. If you are interested in donating and making this dream come true, click here to donate and tell them Watch The Yard sent you.
