About IFC Academy
The NIC has partnered with the National Panhellenic Conference and four regional interfraternal leadership programs to bring IFC officer training to students starting in 2017. In its pilot year, the new IFC Academy curriculum will be facilitated at four regional conferences:
Northeast Greek Leadership Association (NGLA) Annual Conference
Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values (AFLV) Central and West
Southeastern Interfraternity Conference (SEIFC) Leadership Academy
Programming will emphasize interfraternal leadership, establishing a community mindset and goals and will take a deep dive into officer-specific training.
The goal of IFC Academy is to help council officers understand the bigger picture of fraternity and sorority membership, provide nuts-and-bolts training on how to be effective in council officer roles, and engage in council and community goal setting.
IFC Academy is about:
- Building relationships with members of your council and campus community.
- Evaluating your personal, community and sorority/fraternity experience.
- Establishing ownership of your interfraternal experience by exploring your responsibilities and rights.
- Defining expectations for your officer role and resources available to support your success.
- Collaborating with other attendees from your campus to create a plan for interfraternal advancement
Eight Officer Tracks will be offered:
- Judicial/risk management officer
- Internal operations (finance/secretary) officer
- Recruitment officer
- Public relations officer
- Scholarship officer
- Diversity/inclusion officer
- Service/philanthropy officer
