The fraternity and sorority community at ASU strives to build the “New American Fraternity & Sorority Community,” a model for the community “to develop values-based, impact-driven individuals and organizations.” The IFC has played an integral role in driving that vision. The Council has been on the front lines implementing education in the ASU community on topics pertinent to today’s college student, including men’s health and wellness, sexual violence prevention, hazing prevention, and drug and alcohol abuse. In an effort to develop collaborative relationships with community stakeholders, the IFC has hosted several events in conjunction with campus police, including service programs and “Kickball with the Cops.” The IFC emphasizes alignment with NIC Standards, and the fraternity community has continued to grow, welcoming both new chapters and new members at increasing rates. “The Interfraternity Council continues to advocate for and to enhance the student experience at Arizona State University, and I look forward to seeing the impact this student-driven body will continue to have on our university,” said one nominator.
