Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the local governing body that serves the affiliated fraternities within the council. Since the first fraternity came to campus in 1845, IFC chapters have striven to embody the highest levels of leadership, scholarship, and service. IFC prides itself on its ability to create a supportive community for students, provide opportunities for friendship and brotherhood and offering numerous leadership opportunities across the council. 

Joining the Interfraternity Council

Men interested in joining an Interfraternity Council (IFC) fraternity may do so by participating in the IFC semi-structured process informally known as “Rush” or by being offered a “late bid”.  

IFC Statement Regarding Events at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021

The University of Michigan IFC Executive Board condemns the actions that took place at the nation’s Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th 2021. We firmly stand against political violence of any kind and recognize the peaceful transition of power as most critical to a free and fair democratic process. This act of insurrection is not reflective of the vision we share for our country, and we mourn those citizens and officers killed and injured during the horrific events that occurred.

IFC- Mental Health Series - November 2020

The Interfraternity Council is proud to present three events that focus on the mental health. The IFC values the mental health of it members and recognizes the stress that many students have experienced this semester. In light of a difficult election and a relentless pandemic students have persevered this semester under extraordinary circumstances. Nevertheless, many brothers, sisters, friends, and families are struggling during these difficult times and could use help. Attending any of these three events will make it easier to help someone with mental illness.
