Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship, Inc. was founded at Morgan State College (now Morgan State University) on October 12, 1962 by fourteen daring, young, black American men who wanted to change the way we think about brotherhood.
Our founders established the Fellowship with the purposes of promoting academic awareness, ethical standards, and unity among men in undergraduate and graduate college programs; creating intelligent and effective leadership; and studying and helping to alleviate the social and economic problems of society to generally improve the world.
Little did our founders know in 1962 that the fruits of their efforts at Morgan State College would evolve into a thriving movement that continues to play an important role in developing and nurturing what we know as Black America.
The Fellowship currently has thousands of members and dozens of graduate and undergraduate chapters across the United States. Our members work in a wide variety of career areas, including accounting, education, engineering, human resource services, local and state government, medicine, law, protective services, information technology, religion, real estate, food service, skilled crafts, music, professional sports, the armed services, and business.
In support of its purposes, the Fellowship’s affiliate chapters and members are encouraged to actively support the programs identified in our National Community Service Manual and the Groove Fund, Inc., the charitable arm of Groove Phi Groove.
The governing structure of the Fellowship consists of
- The Conclave
- The National Constitution & Bylaws Manual
- The National Executive Board of Directors
- The National Directorate Staff
- Regional Offices
- Local Chapters
