Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) Intake
Intake is the membership selection process conducted by UNM’s multiculturally based sororities and fraternities. Many of these organizations are historically African American, Native American, Latino/Latina, or are built from other historically significant cultural roots, but you do not need to be from a certain background to join an organization.
- Each group’s intake process is difference, including when they take on new members. This process, known as “general intake” begins with an interest meeting, followed by a period of membership education.
- Member initiation is called “crossing” and is an often-public presentation where new members are recognized and unveiled to the University community. Please see the video below for an example of a new member showcase.

- MGC chapters pride themselves on unique cultural backgrounds, diversity, unity, and a commitment to academic achievement, political awareness, and service. Most organizations have smaller chapter sizes, ranging from 1-20.
- Most MGC organizations do not currently have chapter houses, but use many common spaces including the Residence Halls, the Student Union Building, and other areas across campus.
