Interfraternity Councils (IFC)

Local Interfraternity Councils have the ability to serve as one of the strongest advocates for the fraternal movement at the campus level. The NIC will continue to offer resources, staff support, and educational programming for councils through the IFC Chartering Initiative. These resources include staff consultations, virtual meeting attendance, officer manuals and other resource guides, policy review, assessment, and advising for individual council officers.

There are occasions when the NIC must intervene in cases where a local IFC is operating outside of compliance with the NIC Standards. Whenever intervention measures are taken, the NIC will communicate to member fraternities the nature of the complaint and appropriate next steps to ensure a timely resolution. NIC member fraternities are encouraged to provide regular education to their members on the role, responsibilities, and function of a campus IFC.
