Fraternity & Sorority Life

Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the local governing body for many 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.



IFC Chapter Recognition Status Statement

Following the recent approval of city zoning regulations that impact fraternity and sorority facilities by requiring organizations maintain affiliation with the university for special permitting, several chapters within U-M’s Interfraternity Council have expressed desire/s to disaffiliate from the university.




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.
