Cultural interest fraternities and sororities

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Cultural interest fraternities and sororities, in the North American student fraternity and sorority system, refer to general or social organizations oriented to students having a special interest in a culture or cultural identity.

Although racial and religious restrictions have long since been abolished in all North American Interfraternity Conference and National Panhellenic Conference organizations, their memberships nationally remain predominantly Caucasian, and National Pan-Hellenic Council memberships predominantly African American. The new generation of "cultural interest" organizations has arisen to serve the interests of communities whose numbers in the traditional Greek system are historically small and dispersed.

Asian American[edit]

Asian American interest Greek lettered organizations first came to be in the early 20th century. After World War II, there was a surge in participation to join these organizations, as college campuses were seeing a rise in multiculturalism.[1] Rho Psi was the first Asian American interest Greek lettered organization and was created on the campus of Cornell University in 1916. Since then, there has been growth in these Asian American interest Greek lettered organizations across North America. There are currently over 60 Asian American interest Greek lettered organizations, 11 of which are overseen by the National APIDA Panhellenic Association.

Latinx[edit]

The first known Latinx fraternal organization was established in 1889 at Cornell University and was named Alpha Zeta Fraternity.[3] The current rise in Latinx Greek organizations began in 1975, and is known as the Latino Greek Movement. This called for the equality of Latinx people in America, and many of these existing organizations were developed to create solidarity and political empowerment for the Latinx community.[3] There are currently 45 Latin oriented fraternities and sororities, 16 of which are under the NALFO (National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations).
