The Alabama Interfraternity Council (IFC) serves as the governing body for 34 men’s social fraternities at The University of Alabama, many of which are affiliated with the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), which is the trade association representing 58 international and national men’s fraternities. For more than 170 years, fraternities have provided a meaningful outlet for students to become involved in campus life outside the classroom through an emphasis on scholarship, leadership, community service, social life, and lasting friendships. The IFC sponsors various programs throughout the year and works with the APA, NPHC, and UGC to strengthen and promote the UA Greek community’s values and vision.
IFC values brotherhood, scholarship, leadership, and community service.
