Thirteen diverse organizations came together in the spring of 2003 with the goals of promoting cultural awareness, Greek unity and to grow stronger on the University campus under the structure of a Greek council.

Representatives from the thirteen organizations met throughout the spring and summer of 2003 to lay the groundwork for the new council. The Multicultural Greek Council was formally established on March 14th, 2003 with Alpha Psi Lambda, Delta Epsilon Psi, Delta Phi Omega, Gamma Alpha Omega, Gamma Phi Delta, Kappa Delta Chi, Kappa Phi Gamma, Lambda Theta Alpha, Omega Delta Phi, Sigma Lambda Beta, Sigma Lambda Gamma, Sigma Phi Omega and Theta Nu Xi as the founding organizations. In April 2003, MGC became the fourth Greek governing council to preside at the University of Houston. In the fall of 2004, MGC granted associate status to alpha Kappa Delta Phi, making it the first expansion organization and bringing the total member count to fourteen.  In 2006 Sigma Beta Rho Multicultural Fraternity joined the council and 2007 Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity joined. The council continued to grow again expanding in 2009 with Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority and Gamma Beta Fraternity.  The last expansion occurred in 2010 with Sigma Sigma Rho Sorority and Beta Chi Theta Fraternity for a total of 20 organizations in the council.

In April 2012, the council decided to split due to the extensive growth. The current member organizations now form the new Multicultural Greek Council.
