The goal of the Interfraternity Council and its officers is to serve as the governing body of the fraternity community, acting as a bridge beween the fraternity community and the rest of the CCU community.
Executive officers work alongside each organization help promote a values-based community, one in which ever fraternity man, past or present would be proud of.
On a yearly basis the Interfraternity Council assists with a series of events including, National Hazing Prevention Week, New Member Education, Greek Day of Service, and Greek Games. IFC also supports all philanthropic events hosted within the community throughout the year.
