The Four Pillars

The Council seeks to help its member fraternities strive to uphold NYU Greek Life's Four Pillars: Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Friendship.

IFC ensures that every fraternity remains dedicated to achieving academic excellence and professional success for its members.

The Council offers fraternity men the opportunity to hold leadership roles on the executive board, providing a leadership experience through which students can make a significant impact on the NYU community.

IFC also provides numerous resources and opportunities in the way of service work to benefit not only the NYU community, but the NYC community and beyond.

Finally, the IFC strives to promote brotherhood within chapters and within the Greek community on the whole by hosting Interfraternity brotherhood social programming and various athletic contests.
