Councils

At the University of Maryland, sororities and fraternities, also known as chapters, are governed by four councils: the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and the Panhellenic Association (PHA). Each of the four councils has unique chapters, traditions, and intake processes. Please see below for more information!

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is comprised of 25 men’s fraternities recognized by this governing entity, and an executive board of 11 officers. The Interfraternity Council serves as the supervisory body of its member fraternities at the University of Maryland; its purpose is to provide for the general welfare, and social, scholastic, and recreational activities of the members of the fraternities at the university; and to instill in them the highest regard for the traditions and institutions of the University of Maryland. The IFC serves as the intermediary between students, the University, and the City of College Park.
