Dartmouth College. Interfraternity Council


The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the student-led governing body for fraternities of Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire. The council is composed of representative members from fraternities on campus. In 1972, the IFC increased the number of representatives from each house from one to two members. The Interfraternity Council has two known sub-committees: the Interfraternity Council Judiciary Committee and the Interfraternity Treasurers’ Council.

The Interfraternity Council Judiciary Committee’s primary concern is the prevention of problems, conflicts, and violations between fraternities and individual fraternity members. The Judiciary Committee is given the power to sanction houses and fraternity members via fines and suspensions. In 1983, the constitution of the Judiciary Committee appointed the Vice-President of the Interfraternity Council as the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Four other student representatives were elected to the Committee. Prior to 1983, representatives from the Dean of College’s office and the Fraternity Governing Board were also included in the body. The Interfraternity Council Judiciary Committee is sometimes referred to as the Interfraternity Judiciary Council, IFCJC, IFC-JC, or the IFC-Judiciary Committee.

The Interfraternity Treasurers’ Council’s primary purpose is the coordination of the functions of fraternity treasurers to achieve efficient financial operations for individual fraternities and as a collective. In 1953, the Interfraternity Treasurers’ Council consisted of the treasurers of the undergraduate fraternities at Dartmouth College. The Interfraternity Treasurers’ Council is sometimes referred to as the Interfraternity Council Treasurers’ Committee, IFCTC, IFC-TC, or IFC-Judiciary Council.
