IFC Social Vote

Live Up Your Responsability

The COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably changed how fall semester at Michigan State University and living within the East Lansing community looks and feels. It forces the Fraternity & Sorority Life (FSL) community to adapt and find ways to not only stay engaged, but to meet these unprecedented challenges with understanding, compassion and a focus on the health and safety of the community.

To that end, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) voted in August 2020 regarding a social moratorium for levels 1, 2 and 4 social events for the Fall 2020 semester. The majority of IFC chapters voted in favor of the social moratorium, but the moratorium did not receive the required two-thirds vote to pass. On Sunday, September 13th, 2020 a re-vote was initiated after IFC Chapter Presidents expressed additional concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 the safety of their members and the surrounding community. That vote has passed unanimously (28 votes in favor and 0 against) and was instituted Sunday, September 20th.
