About the NPHC Drive-In

Miami University's NPHC is excited to host an inaugural Drive-In dedicated to the mission and success of local NPHC chapters. This is a student led and student developed curriculum that will utilize national and local speakers to engage in conversations about NPHC specific operations and issues.


The purpose of the NPHC Drive-In is to engage in conversations surrounding today’s issues facing black Greek lettered organizations in the surrounding region. This program hopes to bring together a community of students to engage in the exchange of ideas and conversations surrounding the larger scale issues their chapters and councils face every day. Using the power of unity as a catalyst, we hope to engage various members of the regional black Greek community and challenge them to think about their existence in a new way.

This program will set students up to have real conversations through self-reflection, shared experiences, and personal accountability. Topics will include toxic NPHC traditions including hazing, sexual language and innuendos, and chapter elitism; hazing traditions including alumni involvement in hazing practices, secretive rush activities, and pre-membership activities; sustainability including recruitment and retention of new members; professional development, and more. 

Learning Outcomes 

As a result of participation in this program participants will...

  1. Understand the importance of building relationships within their community and with surrounding communities.
  2. Engage in challenging conversations regarding the history of their organizations and traditions that are harmful to today’s students.
  3. Enhance their sense of belonging at their respective institutions and the Miami community.
