IFC Resources

The NIC provides crucial support to IFCs through working with our staff and volunteers as well as our organization, campus and programming partners, to curate this library of IFC resources. Combined with the support you receive at the campus level and from your inter/national organization, we believe a well-rounded collection of resources ranging from officer manuals to instructional videos can set up IFC leaders for success.

  • Kyle Martin: Region 1 (red on the map) and Big Ten schools. Email Kyle
  • Ryan Temby: Region 2 (blue on the map) and SEC schools. Email Ryan
