Interfraternity Council (IFC)


The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is governed by the North-American Interfraternity Conference, which is an association of collegiate men's fraternities that was formally organized in 1910, although it began on November 27, 1909. The power of the organization rests in a House of Delegates in which each member fraternity is represented by a single delegate.
