Statement on racially offensive photos

The North American Interfraternity Conference is deeply disappointed by offensive photos that have recently resurfaced involving fraternity men from decades ago.

As fraternity men, we must acknowledge and denounce all forms of racism. We must unite around the notion that fraternal bonds are built on concepts of respect, dignity and empathy for all people.

In recent years, we have invested significant resources in supporting emerging and culturally-based fraternities, as well as enhancing education for all fraternity members on the importance of diversity and inclusion. We will continue working with our member fraternities, partners, and higher education institutions to improve awareness and education around these important issues.
