Statement regarding formation of Durham Interfraternity Council

February 15, 2021

We support Duke University student leaders’ in forming the Durham Interfraternity Council to focus on a safe and healthy fraternity experience while ensuring students have the opportunity to join fraternities, or any student organization, at the time that they feel is best for them. As research shows, fraternity members benefit from engagement significantly more than non-members, particularly in first-year students, and report higher levels of positive mental health along with lower rates of depression and anxiety which is important during the current pandemic.
