Interfraternity Council

Interfraternity Council

The Interfraternity Council, or IFC, is the governing body of the nine fraternity chapters at SMU affiliated with the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC).

IFC is a student-run organization that exists:

  • To promote the interests of the University, which include scholarship, leadership, and citizenship.
  • To promote the interests and unity of the Greek organizations represented on campus.
  • To promote the interests of college fraternities, in general, which includes the consideration that they are viable and valuable collegiate experiences.
  • To facilitate communication and cooperation between member fraternities and the University administration and faculty.

The Interfraternity Council organizes activities in which its member fraternities participate, such as community service, recruitment events, educational programs, and leadership development.

Some of the highlights of IFC involvement include Fraternity Formal Recruitment, New Member Seminars, Trick or Treat on Greek Street & The Annual Easter Egg Hunt benefiting Trinity River Mission, attending the Association of Fraternal Leadership & Values Conference, opportunities to attend national leadership development conferences like the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute (UIFI) and Leadershape, and hosting the Special Olympics Texas Volleyball Tournament for Dallas.

A list of current and former chapters and their conduct status is available here.

Southern Methodist University has a long and rich relationship with inter/national fraternities and sororities. The first inter/national fraternities and sororities joined the SMU campus in 1915. SMU presently recognizes campus chapters of eleven (11) Interfraternity Council fraternities, five (5) Multicultural Greek Council groups, seven (7) National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations, and eight (8) Panhellenic Council sororities. These chapters and their inter/national organizations are governed by one of these four governing councils chartered by the University.
