About Us

Mision Statement

The purpose of this organization shall be to promote and maintain fraternal ideals, spirit and leadership among fraternities at Texas State University; promote and ensure cooperation among the fraternities, their National Organizations, the University administration, and the community; aid in the development and maturation of individual fraternity members; provide a medium for the exchange of ideas among the various fraternities; coordinate the fraternities in order to make them as effective as possible; and promote the interest of college fraternities in general.

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) at Texas State is the governing body for 14 fraternities, and is associated with the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC). The IFC’s principle responsibilities are coordinating the formal recruitment process, organizing Greek community events, promoting a positive Greek image and operating a student-run peer judicial system for its member fraternities.

The IFC provides chapters a chance to build relations with each other, unite on issues concerning the council, and provides an opportunity for student chapter members to excel both inside and outside the classroom. Below is a link to the bylaws that govern the Greek men at Texas State and the high standards Greeks are held to.

CORE VALUES

 

We, the members of the Interfraternity Council at Texas State University, accept the following Core Values:

 

 

Honesty

Agreements will be made in an open forum with all representatives present. The Interfraternity Council, its officers and committees, and all member organizations, will always follow the guidelines and policies in their Constitution and Bylaws when conducting business and making decisions.
 

Loyalty

Greek leaders (IFC Executive Officers, Committee Chairs, Judicial Board, and Representatives) shall represent the needs and work for the good of the whole Greek community rather than any one or more individual organizations.
 

Integrity

Greek leaders are expected to keep promises, to do what they say they will do.
 

Dignity

Greek leaders consider the impact of what they say and do and how they say and do it on every other person involved.
 

Commitment

When Greek leaders accept a job, they complete it. They follow through. They don't abandon their office or their job. They don't just fill a spot - they are personally involved.
 

Excellence

Greek leaders give 110 percent. Greek leaders work with the whole to accomplish more (synergy).
 

Diligence

Everything Greek leaders do, they do to the best of their ability.
 

Courage

Greek leaders are prepared to do the things that may not be popular. They are prepared to make changes instead of letting change happen, even if the change may make some fellow Greeks feel uncomfortable. They are prepared to take risks - to give up some control. They are prepared to fight for what they believe in. They know that they can count on all other officers, representatives, and committee chairs or members to stand beside them.
 

Respect

Greek leaders follow the Golden Rule: Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you. They respect the power of leadership and do not abuse it. They expect each other to know or learn about their roles and the things they need to accomplish.
 

Friendship

Greek leaders share trust, loyalty and respect. They have fun together.
 

Trust

Greek leaders can count on each other. Greek leaders are trustworthy.
 

Scholarship

Greek leaders believe in learning, developing and growing together.
