Fraternities

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of the Greek fraternities at Nebraska Wesleyan University.

IFC encourages leadership, academics, and community service across the Greek system. Together, IFC and Panhellenic Council sponsor all-Greek events that promote the brotherly and sisterly bonds of Greek life. 

Commitment to Academics

As fraternity members at Nebraska Wesleyan University, we realize our primary objective is to obtain a quality education. We help each other in the pursuit of academic excellence.

Chapter houses have computers, libraries, quiet places to study, and enforced quiet hours. Study groups and tutors offer additional support. Each chapter has its own academic achievement awards and scholarship programs.

Cost

The cost of dues varies from chapter to chapter. The average cost of first-year membership is around $400 per semester. Additionally the cost of fraternity housing and meal plan is considerably cheaper than what it costs to live in a residence hall after a student's first year. 

Alcohol and Drugs

Each organization at Nebraska Wesleyan University participates in a risk management program, which sets strict guidelines about the use of alcohol. Since the inception of this program, safety has improved at all Greek social functions. All fraternity and sorority houses are drug and alcohol free. 

Fire and Health Safety

Greek chapter facilities are required to meet all local fire and helath codes and standards. Chapter houses are inspected by the Lincoln Fire Marshal each year to ensure compliance to all codes and standards. Chapters are required to hold fire and evacuation drills at least four times per academic year and test all smoke detectors and emergency lights each month. As of Fall 2017, all Greek chapter houses have functioning sprinkler systems in every room of the facility.

Chapter Conduct and Accountability

All fraternity chapters are responsible to the National Interfraternity Council policies and guidelines, the Interfraternity Council Constitution and Bylaws, the Interfraternity Council Recruitment Guidelines, the Greek Review Board policies, the Interfraternity Council Code of Ethics, all chapter inter/national and local policies and guidelines, FIPG policies, Nebraska Wesleyan University's Student Code of Conduct, and all federal, state and local laws.

Failure to comply with guidelines and policies may result in judicial action from the Greek Review Board, the University Judiciary, and/or the local, state or federal courts.

To report a complaint against a fraternity or sorority organization, please contact the Assistant Director of the Center for Student Involvement, Karri Sanderson-Tobler ksanders [at] nebrwesleyan.edu.
