Interfraternity Council Wins Regional Awards


The JSU Interfraternity Council received three awards at the Southeastern Interfraternity Conference in Atlanta on Feb. 21-23. The organization was honored with the following: 
  • Excellence in Outstanding Alumni Development - awarded to the IFC that has developed programs to keep alumni informed throughout the school year, as well as provided active support of their own chapters and the campus fraternity community.
  • Excellence in Outstanding Campus and Community Relations - recognizes the IFC that best fosters understanding and supports the fraternity movement through positive interactions with neighbors, faculty and administrators, law enforcement agencies and the media. 
  • Fraternal Excellence Award - measures excellence in 11 areas of chapter operations, including management, chapter services, judicial process, leadership development, legal concerns, philanthropy and community service, public relations and publications, finance, recruitment, scholarship and academics, and social engagement. 

The Interfraternity Council is the governing body for JSU's six North American Interfraternity Conference fraternities. Its purpose is to foster cooperation among its members, provide services to the chapters, promote the fraternal community, enhance the relationship between its members and the university community, and act as the judicial body for the actions of its members. 

In addition to the Southeastern Interfraternity Conference, JSU was also well represented at two other regional conferences. The National PanHellenic Council (NPHC) attended the Southeastern Cultural Greek Leadership Summit and the College Panhellenic Council (CPH) attended the Coalition for Collegiate Women’s Leadership, where JSU’s Morgan Jones served as a conference coordinator and Josh Robinson as an advisor on the conference planning team.
