About the Interfraternity Council
Established in 1859, the Interfraternity Council governs the fraternities, which have existed at Dickinson for over 150 years. The Interfraternity Council advocates the needs of its member fraternities through enrichment of the fraternity experience, advancement and growth of the fraternity community, and enhancement of the Dickinson's educational mission. The Interfraternity Council is also committed to enhancing the benefits of fraternity membership.
The Interfraternity Council serves as the representative governing body that guides, supports, develops, and regulates the fraternity community and enforces College and individual organization policies on-campus. The Interfraternity Council promotes academic excellence and opportunities for engaged learning among all fraternity members in addition to sponsoring a variety of social and service activities throughout the academic year.
