NIC 2.0

2.0 – A distinction used to denote an advanced version of an original concept, product or service. NIC 2.0 The Future of Fraternities 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. Convened around this challenge, the NIC is hitting reboot. We are reshaping our century-old organization to enact positive changes to ensure the fraternity movement thrives in the future. Yes, the new NIC will still be a trade association for the fraternal industry, but you will see its culture shift in conjunction with its reframed priorities. We will operate more like a cutting-edge technology company, creating resources and solutions to address common problems traditional approaches no longer answer. Our tone will focus around the values of humility, strong work ethic, and teamwork. By staying true to this culture, we hope to inspire the industry to embrace a similar paradigm to collaboration. The 5 Priorities of NIC 2.0 NIC 2.0 is a cohesive effort to bring about changes in the fraternity industry. It will be a force to move beyond conversation and ideas scrawled on flip charts into tangible action...

Research National Gallup-Purdue Index Reveals Improved Well-Being Among U.S. College Graduates Who Joined Fraternities and Sororities Results for the Gallup-Purdue Index are based on online surveys conducted Feb. 4-March 7, 2014, with a random sample of 29,560 respondents with a bachelor’s degree or higher, aged 18 and older, with Internet access, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. This included 5,137 fraternity and sorority members. The North-American Interfraternity Conference and National Panhellenic Conference partnered with Gallup for this first-of-its-kind study. When it comes to being engaged at work and experiencing high well-being after graduation, a new Gallup-Purdue University Index study of U.S. college graduates found that graduates who are members of fraternities or sororities are more likely to thrive in all five elements of well-being during their post-graduate years than those graduates who did not join. The study revealed that respondents identifying themselves as members of fraternities and sororities—16 percent of respondents indicated that they were a member of a national fraternity or sorority while attending college—scored better in overall well-being, workplace engagement, collegiate support, experiential learning and alumni attachment. Overall Well-Being Graduates who participated in fraternities or sororities are slightly more likely to be thriving in all five critical elements of well-being—purpose, social, financial, physical and community—than are graduates who did not participate in fraternities or sororities. Workplace Engagement National results show 43% of college graduates...
