Interfraternity Council (IFC)
The IFC works every day to endorse scholarship, leadership, sportsmanship, and brotherhood to unify the fraternity community. The University of Iowa Interfraternity Council (IFC) serves as the governing body to the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) fraternities chartered on Iowa’s campus. The main purpose of the IFC is to strengthen and promote the fraternity community.
Multicultural Greek Council (MGC)
The MGC’s purpose is to promote multicultural awareness and to improve relations among all campus fraternities and sororities. The Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) is the newest and fastest-growing governing body at Iowa, serving members of multicultural fraternities and sororities, including Latino/a, Asian, and LGBTQ- based chapters. The MGC works closely with the NPHC to promote chapter Membership Intake and Recruitment processes at the annual welcome event in the fall called “Meet the Greeks.” At this program, interested men and women can learn all about the various multicultural chapters at Iowa.
National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC)
Each NPHC organization was established on the tenants of brotherhood/sisterhood, high scholarship, leadership and service to others. Iowa is proud to host seven of the “Divine Nine” historically African-American fraternities and sororities on campus. Each chapter will individually announce its membership selection/intake process in September. NPHC sororities and fraternities present information about their individual chapters for prospective members in their own recruitment format. NPHC organizations typically do not accept a student for membership until the student has completed at least 12-24 hours of college credit with a minimum grade point average.
Panhellenic Council (PHC)
The Panhellenic women work together to unite sororities, empower women, focus on common goals, and create a network of support for chapters and members. The Panhellenic Council (PHC) is the governing and servicing body for the 14 National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities and one associate chapter on campus.
The story of the University of Iowa Fraternity and Sorority Community started in 1866 with the first fraternity, Beta Theta Pi.
