In the Fall of 2020, we launched a campaign to create a garden plaza on campus to physically represent and honor the National Pan-Hellenic Council chapters on campus. Through this project, our goal is to create an inclusive community at UW-Madison that recognizes the historic impact that our Black Fraternities and Sororities have had. Through these efforts, we were able to break ground on April 24th, 2021 at the Vilas Green located on East Campus Mall. Our community dedicated this location for the Divine Nine Plaza and held the Grand Opening on Saturday May 7, 2022.
Below you will find photos of the historical event, along with ways to continue to stay engaged with NPHC.
Thanks to our generous Divine Nine community and supporters, we officially opened the UW-Madison Divine Nine Garden Plaza on May 7th, 2022. Below you will find information that provides a way to give back to NPHC for programmatic efforts. Please click on the tab to learn more.

The Future of NPHC at UW-Madison
A physical recognition of the National Pan-Hellenic Community at UW-Madison has been a critical step to increasing the visibility of NPHC organizations and their history on campus. Now that we’ve been able to celebrate the incredible milestone of opening the garden plaza, more support is needed to ensure the long-term health of the community.
The National Pan-Hellenic Council Fund has been created to provide vital discretionary money to the NPHC organizations to best meet their most urgent needs. Whether that’s funding to support programs, increased marketing for recruitment, grants to aid special initiatives, or awards to exemplary NPHC students. We hope you consider making a gift to the NPHC fund allowing the community to continue to thrive for generations to come.
