The 2017 Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) is underway! Session 1 began on May 13 and Session 2 kicks off on May 17, with nine more sessions throughout the summer months. We wouldn’t be able to make this program happen without the support of a special group of collegiate fraternity and sorority members—our Student Coordinators!

Student Coordinators for UIFI 2017 were selected from a pool of more than 130 applicants and are all graduates of UIFI. They were chosen based upon their leadership experiences as well as their ability to inspire and create lasting change in their own chapters and communities. Each Student Coordinator plays a critical role at UIFI—from managing much of the logistical support for sessions, to delivering testimonials during the program, which is consistently viewed as a UIFI highlight.

UIFI is a five-day institute sponsored by the NIC that brings together fraternity and sorority members from across North America to create opportunities for exploring, defining and enhancing their leadership skills. Participants also increase their personal awareness and commitment to their fraternity or sorority, and grow to expect values-based action from themselves and those they lead.
