UMass Fraternities and the Interfraternity Council
The Interfraternity Council is the governing body of the fraternities that are affiliated with the North-American Interfraternity Conference and those local chapters that have membership on the council. Member chapters send two delegates, one usually being the chapter president, to council meetings. The council officers are elected from the membership of the council and serve in office for one calendar year. The IFC coordinates recruitment for the member chapters, sets standards, and facilitates relationships. The IFC cooperates with other councils to sponsor Greek Week, guest speakers, and other activities.
The NIC serves the needs of its member fraternities through advocacy, collaboration, and education. Through the enrichment of the fraternity experience; advancement and growth of the fraternity community; and enhancement of the educational mission of the host institutions the NIC works to ensure that fraternities can operate in an environment conducive to their success.. The NIC is also committed to enhancing the benefits of fraternity membership. Today, the NIC has 75 member organizations with approximately 5,500 chapters located on 800+ campuses in the United States and Canada with approximately 350,000 undergraduate members. The NIC is led by a Board of Directors comprised of nine volunteers from member fraternities. The headquarters and professional staff are located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
