About the Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council at the University of Tennessee is the governing body of the fraternities at UT who are eligible for membership in the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). IFC strives to promote high academic standards, philanthropic services, resources for recruitment, and inter-fraternity unity.

Of the sixty-three NIC fraternities in the United States and Canada, twenty-one are registered at Tennessee.

The North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) is an organization established to foster inter-fraternity relations and assist in the development and education of NIC fraternities and their member chapters. These organizations are dedicated to personal development, academic achievement, leadership, and service to the campus community. Activities of a fraternity may include study halls, community service projects, cook-outs, intramural sports, educational programs, sorority mixers, formal dances, and leadership training. Fraternities ultimately offer close friendships that will last through college and beyond.

Our Values

Growth Through Leadership

We focus on leadership and give the men of the community a meaningful opportunity to develop themselves and their skill sets through their positions, both within their chapters and the Council. The leadership roles and responsibilities provided allow these brothers to grow into stronger men, scholars, and leaders.

Self-Governance & Accountability

We are committed to upholding our values by maintaining an environment of individually self-governed chapters held accountable to meet the standards of each other, the University, governing bodies, and our Council.

Brotherhood & Community

We offer our members the ability to bond and grow through activities that strengthen the life-long brotherhood of their own chapter and the networks built within the community

Service to Others & Self

We provide men with a variety of service opportunities and resources, on and off campus, in order to embody and garner a deeper meaning of the Volunteer spirit.
