UNC Interfraternity Council


Academics, Philanthropy, Brotherhood

Our Mission


As the governing body for all twenty-seven IFC fraternities at UNC, the Interfraternity Council is the largest men’s organization on campus. With such a breadth of representation, our organization seeks to use its ability and means to create a far-reaching impact on the Carolina Community by advancing our four core values: scholarship, campus involvement, brotherhood, and philanthropy. We do this through each of our member chapters and the brothers that work therein. Through their tireless efforts, the IFC boasts a higher average GPA than the student body at-large, millions of dollars raised annually for charity, members in countless leadership positions across campus, and the cultivation of lifelong friendship after lifelong friendship. These are facts that we take great pride in as we continue Carolina's storied Greek tradition.

We invite each of you to explore our site and discover the great opportunities the IFC may have for you. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact someone on our executive board.

F.A.Q


At UNC-Chapel Hill, our IFC fraternities have cemented a precedent of excellence in improving the greater community through philanthropy and community service. Throughout the school year, our chapters work with one another to raise money for a multitude of causes, from Relay for Life and the Eve Carson Memorial Fund, to Camp Kesem and the “Brothers For” Habitat project. Each chapter dedicates thousands of hours each year to their own local and/or national philanthropy, including the Children’s Miracle Network, the American Red Cross, and the N.C. Children’s Hospital. Philanthropy and community service are long- honored traditions of our fraternity system, and we strongly encourage all new members tofind personally meaningful ways to continue this tradition.
By joining a fraternity here at UNC, you enter an environment that nurtures academic excellence. In fact, on average, Greek students consistently perform better academically than the general student body. For the past 13 consecutive years, the All-Greek GPA has been higher than the All-University GPA. For example, for the fall  semester, the All-Greek GPA was 3.3, while the All- University GPA was 3.2. Fraternity men here at UNC are no exception to this trend of Greek students’ strong academic performance; for the fall semester, the All-IFC GPA of 3.22 was also higher than the All-University GPA. Each chapter also has multiple programs in place, such as brother tutoring programs and academic incentives, to support those who may struggle at any point.
All IFC fraternities at UNC-Chapel Hill have a risk management program that conforms to the standards of their individual national organization and complies with University policies, as well as applicable federal, state, and local laws. Additionally, the Interfraternity Council has adopted a risk management policy for their 24 member organizations. Each fraternity is also required to have a written accountability/judicial process that addresses, at a minimum, issues of hazing, alcohol and drug violations, and interpersonal violence, and the IFC maintains a standards board
to hear and adjudicate matters of chapter- wide misconduct. Each semester, every IFC fraternity participates in mandatory risk management training through the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and Community Involvement, which covers reducing risk related to fire safety, social events, and house management.
The IFC is committed to fostering organizations that provide a positive, and safe environment for new and existing members. The IFC expressly prohibits hazing or any activity that puts a student’s physical, emotional, or psychological health and safety at risk. Through the OFSL-CI, there are two ways for students, parents, faculty, staff, and community members to report incidents that are physically, emotionally, or psychologically detrimental and damage the integrity of the fraternity community. The anonymous Hazing Hotline is available in two forms: an online form available at ofslci.unc.edu and a 24- hour telephone hotline available at 919.962.8298.The Interfraternity Council Judicial Board investigates all reports of hazing thoroughly and adjudicates policy violations as appropriate.

IFC Policy: Hazing that causes or permits an individual, with or without consent, to engage in activities that subject that individual or others to risks of physical injury, mental distress, or personal indignities of a highly offensive nature, in connection with recruitment, initiation, or continued membership in a society, fraternity or sorority, club, or similar organized group whether or not recognized by the University.” [Instrument of Student Judicial Governance, §II.C.1.f]  

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA HAZING LAW 14-35. Hazing; definition and punishment. It is unlawful for any student in attendance at any university, college, or school in this State to engage in hazing, or to aid or abet any other student in the commission of this offense. For the purposes of this section hazing is defined as follows: "to subject another student to physical injury as part of an initiation, or as a prerequisite to membership, into any organized school group, including any society, athletic team, fraternity or sorority, or other similar group." Any violation of this section shall constitute a Class 2 misdemeanor. (2003) 14.38 Witnesses in hazing trials; no indictment to be founded on self-incriminating testimony. In all trials for the offense of hazing any student or other person subpoenaed as a witness in behalf of the State shall be required to testify if called upon to do so: Provided, however, that no student or other person so testifying shall be amenable or subject to indictment on account of, or by reason of, such testimony. (1913, C. 169, s. 8; C.S., s. 4220.)  

Questions to ask to determine if an act or event may be considered hazing (1) Is alcohol involved? (2) Will active/current members of the group refuse to participate with the new members and do exactly what they're being asked to do? (3) Does the activity risk emotional or physical abuse? (4) Is there risk of injury or a question of safety? (5) Do you have any reservation describing the activity to your parents, to a professor or University official? (6) Would you object to the activity being photographed for the school newspaper or filmed by the local TV news crew? If the answer to any of these questions is "yes," the activity is probably hazing.   
The IFC believes that a student’s new member period, which lasts no longer than eight weeks, should be one of growth and discovery. During this period, a new member learns about the history and rituals of his fraternity, and becomes better acquainted with his fellow new members and with all of the members of his chapter. It is the hope of the Interfraternity Council that the active members of the chapter will serve as mentors by sharing experiences, offering advice, and monitoring the study habits and academic achievements of each new member. To ensure that these goals are met, the IFC maintains a Code of Conduct that outlines a set of standards to be upheld and embraced by the fraternity community, and are enforced by the IFC Judicial Board. To further enhance the new member education process, the IFC also hosts four mandatory new member education sessions throughout the course of each semester. These informative, engaging sessions cover a variety of topics, from drug and alcohol safety to making the most of your fraternity experience.
While each fraternity's dues are different, there are some similarities across the system. In-house dues include room charges, utilities, approximately 10 to 14 meals each week, as well as things such as leadership training, retreat costs, intramural sports, social activities, building and house improvement fees, national dues, liability insurance, and academic incentives. Out-of-house dues include the same except for rent, utilities, and possibly a limited meal plan. New member dues include the same as out-of-house member dues with a few one-time fees for initiation and dues to the national organization. As these numbers show, it is often less expensive to live in a fraternity house than on campus or in Granville Towers.
