IFC Social Vote

Interfraternity Council (IFC) Presidents’ Council Social Moratorium In Effect

The IFC released a Press Release on December 16, 2020 including the following: Continuing to operate in the same way as before the pandemic, we would be posing substantial risks to ourselves, faculty, staff, and other members of the East Lansing community. We have a responsibility to the community to be proactive in this situation and continue the necessary precautions to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as we await full vaccination and guidance from the state of Michigan.
The main precaution we are taking is the cancellation of Type I, II, and IV Social Events, as defined by the IFC/PC joint social policy. Type III events (events at 3rd party vendors) have not been cancelled due to vendors being required by law to follow city and state COVID-19 policies and precautions.
As defined by the IFC Constitution, a vote to alter IFC social policy bylaws needed to take place. The IFC Presidents’ Councils, consisting of all Chapter Presidents from the 28 IFC chapters, have voted and unanimously approved a moratorium on these Social Events for the entirety of the Spring 2021 semester. The Interfraternity Council Executive Board fully supports recommendations made by Michigan State to suspend these events. If we are to return to in-person experiences, it is imperative that we all do our part. We truly appreciate our chapters’ compliance, as it will take our entire community’s cooperation to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Please contact IFCPresident@greeklife.msu.edu or IFCVPCommunications@greeklife.msu.edu for further questions or clarity. You may listen to a Panel Discussion with Ingham County health officials here.

The Fraternity & Sorority Life Staff is actively working with the university, national headquarters, and City of East Lansing this fall.
