A new plaza honoring the National Pan-Hellenic Council is being installed this summer, near the Scripps [Amphitheater] on College Green.

The National Pan-Hellenic Council Plaza is scheduled for completion and a grand opening during Black Alumni Reunion Weekend, which is Sept. 15-18. NPHC Vice President and a member of Sigma Psi Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., Dale Robinson said the project will increase NPHC’s visibility on campus.

“Our presence will no longer be in the shadows and only acknowledged by people who look like us, but rather everyone who passes by College Green and would like to know more about the monument,” Robinson said. 

The NPHC is composed of historically African American fraternities and sororities, which have had a presence on campus for more than 100 years. The plaza will help NPHC reach its goals of uplifting the community and raising awareness of the Council.

“Let it serve as a commitment to diversity and inclusion and the promise of OHIO to live out its values in action,” former NPHC/Multicultural Greek Council Adviser Stephen Black said.
