The NPHC was founded in May of 1930 at Howard University in Washington, DC in order to promote unity and expose members to the "service for life" philosophy and foster leadership development and scholarship. It should also be noted that member organizations have never restricted membership solely to African Americans. They have, however, developed a distinctive African American style in their activities both social and philanthropic. Each school having organizations belonging to the the NPHC has a PHC Chapter.
