THE PURPOSE OF THE IFC

A Letter from the President

Greetings to all,

 

My name is Seth, and I serve as the 2019-2020 IFC President. The Interfraternity Council’s (IFC) purpose is to ensure that fraternal chapters who are in IFC, follow the proper guidelines and regulations set by the IFC Executive board. The IFC is regulated by the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), which has its own standards and regulations that all IFC chapters must meet. The IFC is also supposed to provide an environment that promotes growth, safety, education and accountability for all IFC fraternities at Northern Arizona University.

 

The IFC’s Executive Board is composed of members who are from fraternal chapters at NAU and represented in our IFC community. These members are voted in by the IFC delegation, and the delegation is composed of each chapter's president as well as 4 representatives from their individual chapters. Once each member is elected to their respective IFC Executive position, they must disassociate themselves from their fraternal chapters during all IFC events. This process ensures that the IFC Executive board is unbiased and fair when voting and making judicial or executive decisions. The IFC executive board members must maintain a 2.75 GPA cumulative in order to sustain their position for their term of 2 semesters. The IFC Executive board has taken an oath to our fraternal chapters to serve the IFC community’s best interest and provide diligent work in order to ensure a positive and safe community.

 

Kind regards,

 

Seth Clem

IFC President at Northern Arizona University
