IFC named top IFC in the country by the North American Interfraternity Conference

The University of Tennessee Interfraternity Council (IFC) was recognized as a 2022 Outstanding IFC by the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) in December.

NIC noted the commitment to the health and wellness of IFC members, stating, “Intentional about using campus resources to their advantage, the UT IFC is invested in the betterment of its members through health and wellness programming like healthy relationship topics, men’s mental health, and intentional brotherhood.”

Additionally, NIC recognized IFC’s effort to focus on the advancement of the greater fraternity community. The nomination indicated that, “while regularly hosting IFC roundtables and individual chapter educational meetings around health and safety, safe events, DEI, and recruitment, they also have developed relationships with the other three councils on campus through relationship building and showing support for the community as a whole. The University of Tennessee, Knoxville took a dedicated approach to not working within a silo of fraternities but thinking about the greater community at all times.”

IFC also received award recognition for IFC Outstanding President, Outstanding IFC Advisor, Outstanding Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Outstanding Peer Governance.

The North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) is a trade association representing 56 international and national men’s fraternities. NIC member organizations represent a diverse range of fraternity men and interfraternal interests, including fraternities founded for leadership and business interests, faith-based, multicultural, historically black, and new or emerging fraternities.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at UT is composed of 20 active men’s fraternities. The IFC community is 150 years old and is proud of its strong tradition of having quality men’s fraternities.
