Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations. Every group was founded with purpose, values, principles, and a mission in context of their time and experience in American history.
The five women’s sororities on campus are governed by the Panhellenic Council (PHC), founded locally in 1981. Elected Council officers meet weekly to discuss current issues, advocate for the community, and plan events. Every chapter has delegate representatives who guide the direction of the councils. PHC President is Caitlyn Dempsey (email@example.com). Visit the Lafayette College Panhellenic Council Website
The six men’s fraternities are governed by the Interfraternity Council (IFC), founded locally in 1916.

The purpose of the IFC is to provide and maintain a community environment that fosters unity, representation, communication, and governance amongst the fraternities of Lafayette College. The IFC President is Luc Ware (firstname.lastname@example.org)
