Governing Councils and Organizations at ULV
Interfraternity Council (IFC)
The Interfraternity Council (IFC) governs fraternities, which are members of the National Interfraternity Conference (NIC). There are 2 NIC fraternities at the University of La Verne. All chapters maintain programs in the areas of scholarship, social activities, leadership development, community service, and brotherhood. All of the NIC fraternities conduct year-round membership selection, with major recruitment periods (Rush) at the beginning of each semester. For more information on joining an IFC fraternity, contact the Greek Advisor at 909.593.3511 Ext. 4485. In keeping with national policies, all fraternity rush events are alcohol-free.
The College Panhellenic Association (CPA)
The three national sororities and one local sorority at the University of La Verne are members of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) are governed by the College Panhellenic Association. These organizations conduct one "formal rush" per year, just after classes begin in the fall.
The NPC sororities have balanced calendars of activities consisting of philanthropic projects, sisterhood activities, social events, educational programs, alumnae interaction and recognition events. They promote the development of each member to her fullest potential, in supportive and nurturing organization.
For more information about the NPC sororities, contact the Greek Advisor at 909.593.3511 Ext 4485
National Pan-Hellenic Council
There are nine National Pan-Hellenic (NPHC) organizations that over the last twenty years have been part of the ULV Greek system. Because these organizations are typically smaller in chapter size they sometimes are recognized one year and not the next. NPHC groups have only recently been formally recognized at the University of La Verne, and this year NPHC will for the first time operate under its own independent council. Last year two NPHC member chapters were recognized at the University of La Verne.
For more information about NPHC recruitment or a current list of recognized NPHC groups at ULV, contact the Greek Advisor at 909.593.3511 Ext 4485
Order of Omega
Order of Omega is an honorary organization for the members of sororities and fraternities. The purpose of The Order of Omega is threefold: First, to recognize those students who have attained a high standard of leadership in inter-Greek activities, to encourage them to continue along this line, and to inspire others to strive for similar conspicuous attainment. Second, to bring together the most representative fraternity and sorority members and to create an organization that will help to mold the sentiment of the institution on questions of local and intercollegiate affairs. Third, to bring together members of the faculty, alumni, and student members of the institution's fraternities and sororities on a basis of mutual interest, understanding, and helpfulness.
