Thank you for your support of the NPHC Plot on Pitt’s campus. The recent Unveiling of the Plot at Homecoming was a resounding success; over 400 alumni, students, staff and supporters attended the dedication. Speakers included Chancellor Gallagher, Vanetta Cheeks-Reeder (National President, NPHC, Inc.), Kenyon Bonner (Vice Provost, Student Aﬀairs), Val Njie (President, Pitt Alumni Association), Thomas Brooks (President, African American Alumni Council), and Cameron Spooner (President, Pitt NPHC). A brief recap of the Unveiling can be seen here.
Cheers echoed throughout Schenley Quad following the unveiling of the Plot, welcoming each of the Divine Nine Fraternities and Sororities to their new home at the center of Pitt’s campus. Press and media reported on the historic occasion, including coverage in WTAE, The New Pittsburgh Courier, and Pittwire.
We’ve since been inundated with requests to allow further engravings on the monument. As such, our fundraising deadline for the Plot has been extended to December 31st, 2021. However, all remaining engravings will go on a first-come-first-serve basis, so please visit engage.pitt.edu/NPHCplot soon if you don’t want to miss the opportunity to commemorate your (or a loved one’s) name on this Plot.
Thank you for your support and participation in what was termed by Dr. Bonner as, “a new blue, gold and Black moment” in Pitt’s history!
