The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the local governing body for National Interfraternity Conference fraternity chapters at the University of Michigan. IFC works to promote the highest ideals of scholarship, leadership, service and fraternalism among its member organizations. IFC provides educational programming on a variety of topics to fraternity chapters and their members including leadership, risk management, alcohol awareness and scholarship. IFC consists of a 10-member elected executive council and a legislative body of fraternity representatives.
Delta Gamma collegians and alumnae, in conjunction with the Delta Gamma Foundation and the University of Michigan’s Office of Greek Life, are sponsoring a lectureship which highlights their national philanthropy “Service for Sight.”
In 2012 the Michigan Greek Community completed a new Strategic Plan. As students, staff and alumni reviewed the goal areas of the Strategic Plan, it became apparent that in order to effectively implement the goals, chapters needed to be held accountable in a consistent and reasonable manner. A group of students from all four councils met weekly with Office of Greek Life staff and assisted with developing chapter expectations in seven (7) areas. Thus, the Greek Achievement Expectations Program (AE) was established and launched in Fall 2013.
Beyond the Diag, a Student Life program housed in the Dean of Students Office, would like to announce the launch of our new University of Michigan Off-Campus Housing website: http://offcampushousing.umich.edu.
On August 30, 2013, the Interfraternity Council will be sponsoring the IFC Leadership Summit, an opportunity for chapter leaders to brainstorm, gather resources, and work collaboratively in creating effective changes for their organizations.
In addition to their own fraternities and sororities, members participate in other Greek-affiliated organizations that both support the Greek Community and provide additional opportunities for involvement. Honor Societies, philanthropic groups, policy enforcement and education organizations, and skill development programs enhance the overall Greek experience.
The University of Michigan has a long-standing tradition of students, alumni, and fans gathering to celebrate the football season. Students also come together to enjoy events such as Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day. It is important that these events are conducted in a safe, as well as enjoyable, manner.
Men interested in joining an Interfraternity Council(IFC) fraternity may participate in an open, informal recruitment process. Traditionally called "Rush," this occurs at the beginning of the fall and winter academic terms and provides multiple opportunities for both fraternities and potential members to interact.
