New NPHC Legacy Plaza to be dedicated Sept. 30
The National Pan-Hellenic Council, or NPHC, Legacy Plaza, established to honor the council’s organizations and celebrate African American culture at Auburn, will be dedicated on Friday, Sept. 30. Located in front of the new Academic Classroom and Laboratory Complex, the plaza is the first physical landmark on Auburn’s campus for a Black student organization.
“The NPHC Legacy Plaza signifies both the importance of Black Greek organizations to the Auburn experience and the tradition of camaraderie among our student body,” Senior Vice President for Student Affairs Bobby R. Woodard said. “It is a great addition to our campus, and we are looking forward to celebrating the NPHC organizations at this event.”
An initiative spearheaded by past and present NPHC leadership, with support from Auburn’s Student Government Association, Board of Trustees and the entire university Greek community and friends, the Legacy Plaza includes a marker for each of the nine NPHC organizations and one central commemorative marker detailing the plaza’s significance and recognizing project donors. The plaza’s completion coincides with the 50-year anniversary of the charter of the first Black Greek organization at Auburn in 1972.
The Auburn Family is invited to join the 1 p.m. celebration virtually at aub.ie/nphcceremony.
