With a lasting tradition, the
Panhellenic Association has remained
the governing body of sororities on
university campuses since the early
1900s. With each association of so-
rority leaders holding its own unique
attributes, the University of Michi-
gan Panhellenic Association remains
among the strongest in scholarship,

At the University of Michigan, the
Panhellenic Association maintains
representatives and junior represen-
tatives from each of the 20 sororities
along with an executive board, whose
10 members are elected annually.
Responsibilities of the executive
board include presiding over weekly
Panhellenic meetings, representing
the interests of all sorority women on
campus and fostering the ideals that
are inherent to a strong and closely-
knit Greek community. All of the

which Greeks, through a special se-

The University of Michigan Greek
System is unique nationwide because
the it has no formalized ties with the
University itself. At almost all major
universities, the school in question has
designated liaisons as part of the student
affairs department - individuals who
act as advisors to the system and help
promote Greek life as a part of the
university experience.
In recent years, the focus of IFC atten-
tion has been directed to improving the
quality of our system and promoting posi-
tive public relations for the fraternities. In
terms of improving the system, many of
our efforts have come in the areas of
educational programs.
IFC is a leading sponsor of the
University's Alcohol Awareness weeks,
Sexual Assault Awarenessweeksandmany
other major events. In addition, the IFC
has been implementing educational pro-
grams within the system, including may-
oraldebates, voterregistration drives, new
member education days, Sexual Assault

and AwarenessCenter(SAPAC)dialogues
or workshops.
TheIFC, working in conjunction with
the Panhellenic Association, hosts an an-
nualGreek LeadershipConference, which
brings in speakers from around the coun-
try to develop the leadership of Michigan

community an integral part of the frater-
nity experience.
In the past two years, IMC, along with
the Panhellenic Association, has imple-
mentedandenforcedasystem-widecom-
prehensive policy on alcohol - a policy
that improves the system by stressing
responsibility and accountability during
social events.
The IFC executive board consists of
the elected officers of the entire fraternity
system. In addition to the President, the
board includes officers charged with judi-
cial affairs, programming, finances, inter-
nalrelations,membershiprecmitmentand
external relations. These officers work
together throughout the year to set goals

and implement programs for the IFC.
In addition, the IFC executive board
works with avariety of groups on campus,
both within the University and with other
student groups. Whether working with
MSA to help prevent South University
riots or working on the Dean of Students
Multicultural Affairs Board, IFC execu-
tive officers have influence and recogni-
tion across campus.
With2,700men and38fratemities, the
University of Michigan Interfratemity
Council is one of the largest in the nation.
The leaders of the IFC understand the
responsibility placed upon them as mem-
bers of this group and work every day to
make the ideals upon which fraternities
were founded a reality.
Comprising about 25 percent of the
male undergraduatepopulation, theMichi-
gan fratemity system is as diverse as the
University itself. But through the work
done by the IFC, the fraternities can work
together for the ideals that are common to
them all.

members. The basic goal of the IFC is to
promote the ideals of the fraternity system
and to better the system in a variety of
ways. Because of this goal, the IFC ad-
dresses the many issues that are current
both on the University campus and in
society as a whole.
Sexual assault, diversity, hazing, alco-
hol use and abuse and community rela-
tions are but a few of the issues discussed
