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 espoused creeds, mission statements, and the values of fraternities and sororities at Lafayette align with Lafayette College’s intended outcomes for its students.
The six women’s sororities on campus are governed by the Panhellenic Council (PHC). 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 Jane Gibbons (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The four men’s fraternities are governed by the Interfraternity Council (IFC). 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. 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 Cameron Bartlett (email@example.com)
