Interfraternity Council

About Us

The Iowa State University Interfraternity Council (IFC) is dedicated to enhancing the benefits of lifelong fraternal membership by supporting chapters and encouraging their members to develop intellectually, socially and professionally at Iowa State University, as alumni and as members of their community. We support chapters by organizing purposeful programming, providing opportunities for balanced growth and facilitating collaboration among IFC chapters, the Sorority and Fraternity community and Iowa State University. 

 

Everything You Need To Know

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is made up of 32 fraternities on Iowa State's campus. These 32 organizations are home to over 1,900 undergraduate men at ISU. Many of these organizations are a part of the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), a trade association that works to ensure fraternities can operate in an environment conducive to their success through advocacy, collaboration and education. Rich in traditions and history, 29 of the IFC fraternities have homes located south of the ISU campus. Fraternity chapter sizes range from 20-120 members and house capacity ranges from 29-89 beds. IFC organizations participate in informal recruitment 365 days a year. 

The 32 Interfraternity Council chapters are governed by a peer-elected undergraduate board of 11 officers. These IFC officers serve the community through leadership workshops, chapter development, service projects and recruitment. The Interfraternity Council is supported by the Office of Sorority and Fraternity and collaborates with the Collegiate Panhellenic Council, Multiculteral Greek Council and National Pan-Hellenic Council through all-Greek initiatives, strategic planning and support of the fraternity and sorority community.
