Since 1909, the North-American Inter-Fraternity Conference has been serving the men’s college fraternity community in Canada and the United States. Through 66 member fraternities, the NIC represents almost 4.5 million alumni and 400,000 college students in over 5,500 chapters on more than 800 college campuses and advocates the needs of fraternities through the enrichment of the Greek experience, advancement and growth of the fraternities, and enhancement of the educational mission of the host institutions.

The Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC) is the governing board for eleven of the national fraternities that exist at the University of California, Santa Barbara. IFC consists of nine elected executive officers and IFC Presidents from each chapter. The goals of IFC are to:

  • Encourage academic success
  • Foster communication and cooperation between fraternities
  • Provide educational opportunities to cultivate leadership development, personal growth, and responsible decision making skills
  • To work closely with the Collegiate Panhellenic Council, the United Fraternity and Sorority Council, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council to further improve the Greek system as a whole
