Welcome to Cornell University’s Interfraternity Council website.
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the self-governed body of fraternities comprising the majority of the Greek community. The fraternity experience has an intrinsic value in Cornell student life and has existed on campus since the earliest days of the university’s existence. The role of the IFC is to enhance this experience by regulating recruitment, enforcing social regulations, and advocating for fraternity members.
Cornell fraternities are comprised of dedicated and passionate individuals who serve the Ithaca community, excel as scholars, and solidify lasting friendships. Fraternity members contribute significantly to the university through leadership in various areas on campus, including: student government, varsity and club sports, professional development fraternities, and countless other organizations.
Cornell continues to boast one of the largest and most prominent Greek systems in North America with nearly 40 distinct chapters. With such a multitude of organizations, we truly believe that any student will find the right match in this system.
In 2014, the IFC has primary goals of improving communication and transparency with all chapters. Accordingly, we look forward to speaking with members frequently throughout the year. The IFC executive board asks that Greek students work with us to strive for improvements strengthening our community.
