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.
