Fraternities are at a turning point—a critical moment. To thrive today and beyond, fraternal culture must evolve. Through extraordinary interfraternal collaboration, in Fall 2015, men’s fraternities came together to chart a bold course for the future. Their work resulted in sweeping changes to the North-American Interfraternity Conference aimed at creating vibrant, healthy fraternity communities—one community at a time.
