Interfraternity Council Suspends Social Activities and New Member Programs

The fraternity and sorority community at U-M is comprised of four self-governing councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC), Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Panhellenic Association (Panhellenic).  On November 9, 2017, the University of Michigan Interfraternity Council (IFC) leaders and 26 of their affiliated chapter presidents voted to suspend social activities and new member education efforts until further notice. IFC leaders are now focused on a chapter-by-chapter assessment and charting a safer path forward for their community.

Mental Health Chairs implemented in IFC chapters

Curious as to what has been going on within the Greek Life community at the University of Michigan? I had the opportunity to speak with Vice President of Finance for the Interfraternity Council, Max Rothman, about how Greek students have been proactive in their work to spread positive strategies and awareness surrounding Mental Health.


The Greek Community Addresses the Topic of Mental Health

It was December 5, 2016, there was one microphone, a room full of people and the leaders of our four councils stood at the front of a podium in the Michigan Union. Before them in this same room had been speeches, assemblies, dinners, and events over the course of the 99 years the building has stood. But this day was a first. Our community was holding the first ever Greek Life Mental Health Speakout.
