Interfraternity Council


We, the Interfraternity Council, exist to promote the shared interests and values of our member fraternities: leadership, service, brotherhood, and scholarship. We believe in Fraternity and that the shared values of Fraternity drive the IFC to create better communities, better chapters, and better men.

We work to advance the academic mission of the host institution, to enable fraternal organizations to grow and thrive through collaboration and teamwork, to provide an outlet for self-governance and accountability, and to model and teach ethical leadership. In a spirit of mutual support and betterment, we, the men of the Interfraternity Council, pledge to elevate the Ritual and the values of the member organizations.


As a chartered council of the North-American Interfraternity Conference, we pledge ourselves to the following standards:
  • Alcohol-free recruitment and new member education activities
  • Minimum 2.7 Chapter GPA
  • 2.5 GPA for membership eligibility (High School GPA if no established collegiate GPA)
  • New member education programs limited to 12 weeks or less
  • Prohibition of auxiliary groups, such as little sisters
  • Elimination of hazing
  • Risk management policies that address alcohol, drugs, hazing, sexual assault, harassment, and fire safety
  • Support open recruitment and open expansion
  • Provide educational programming related to academic achievement, alcohol and drug use, career preparation, civic engagement, hazing prevention, leadership development, sexual assault awareness/prevention, and values/ethics
  • Establish and adhere to judicial procedures that respect organizational due process
  • Report academic and membership statistics to the NIC as requested
