About the Interfraternity Council
The Interfraternity Council is a self-governing body representing the 26 member fraternities at the University of Georgia. Consisting of the president of each fraternity, the IFC Executive Board, and IFC Clerks, the IFC strives to promote excellence in all aspects of fraternity life and academic pursuits.
The internal committees of the IFC are responsible for diversity, philanthropy, public relations, recruitment, scholarship, risk management and council-wide programming initiatives. The IFC requires all new members to attend educational seminars covering topics such as hazing, drugs and alcohol, sexual assault prevention, diversity, and character development. The IFC requires its fraternities to achieve a 3.0 chapter grade point average in order to have social privileges.
Each fraternity has one vote on issues and proposals brought before the Council. Each member of the IFC is offered the opportunity to serve on a committee, and he assumes the responsibility of being the primary communication link between the Council and his chapter. The IFC is guided by the Advisor to the Interfraternity Council, who is an experienced full-time administrator in the Greek Life Office.
More specific information regarding the Interfraternity Council and its members can be found in the Fraternity Way, our annual recruitment publication.
