What is IFC?
The Interfraternity Council or more commonly referred to as "IFC" is a self-governing body representing the four member fraternities at The University of Louisiana at Monroe. IFC is made up of two parts: an Executive Committee, which is comprised of elected positions, and the General Body, which is made up of two representatives from each chapter. These representatives are usually the chapter president and one delegate.
The IFC strives to promote excellence in all aspects of fraternity life and academic pursuits. The Council also works together to help the entire Greek system better achieve its common goal of membership development and service to the Monroe community. IFC works to achieve these goals through its committee structure focusing on an array of areas including chapter development, scholarship, community service, member education, and alumni and public relations.
The Council is lead by an Executive Committee, which works closely with the Greek Life Advisor. Each year, the Council sponsors numerous educational programs, recruitment events, community service projects, and university and community relations events, such as football tailgates and Greek Unity Week.
What is Panhellenic?
The Panhellenic Council or more commonly referred to as "NPC" is the governing body that is responsible for unifying and governing the three National Panhellenic Conference sororities on ULM's Campus. The Council is composed of women from each sorority who are responsible for the promotion of scholarship, service and safety for each sorority, as well as the entire Greek Community.
The council is led by executive officers who work hard to promote unity and cooperation among Greek Women. Together, all of these women coordinate formal recruitment, work on philanthropic projects, campus-wide activities, and promoting the most positive aspects of sorority and Greek membership.
The National Panhellenic (NPC) Creed
"We, as Undergraduate Members of women's fraternities, stand for good scholarship, for guarding of good health, for maintenance of fine standards, and for serving, to the best of our abilities, our college community. Cooperation for furthering fraternity life, in harmony with its best possibilities, is the ideal that shall guide our fraternity activities.
We, as Fraternity Women, stand for service through the development of character inspired by the close contact and deep friendship of individual fraternity and Panhellenic life. The opportunity for wide and wise human service, through mutual respect and helpfulness, is the tenet by which we strive to live."
What is NPHC?
The National Pan-Hellenic Council or more commonly referred to as "NPHC" and its member organizations have a profound commitment to providing community service and promoting the welfare of the campus and the community. The ULM chapter of NPHC serves as the communication link among the affiliate organizations. Currently at ULM, all nine NPHC member organizations are represented.
NPHC serves as a standard-setting body for the affiliate organizations and strives to foster and maintain a cooperative environment among member fraternities and sororities. The council serves as a forum for the consideration of issues important to its members organizations, and acts as a coordinator of activities and matters of common interest.
