NIC Standards

NIC standards ask each member to live to the highest standards of fraternity membership. NIC Standards The leadership of the NIC’s member fraternities passed a set of standards (revised in 2015) that will propel fraternities to be who we say we are. These standards call upon leadership to create some changes to today’s fraternity and asks each member to live to the highest standards of fraternity membership. Membership in the NIC requires each member organization to adhere to the following Standards of Membership, known as the NIC Standards. Undergraduate chapters are self-governing. Nothing in the NIC Standards shall be interpreted to imply that a member organization has a duty to provide day-to-day supervision or direction, or control the daily activities of undergraduate chapters and/or individual members associated with that member organization. However, member organizations are expected to provide appropriate follow up with their chapters on compliance with NIC Standards to the same extent they follow up with chapters on compliance with the policies of the member organization and to provide its undergraduate chapters with ongoing education on the NIC Standards. Failure of a member organization to provide appropriate follow up with their chapters on compliance with NIC Standards shall subject the member organization to appropriate action by the NIC, up to and including suspension or expulsion of membership in this voluntary trade association.

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...
