Councils

Every recognized fraternity and sorority at The College of New Jersey has a governing council that is associated with their national umbrella organization.  All of the chapters within TCNJ operate and are recognized under the Inter Greek Council (IGC). Within IGC are three governing councils:

  • Panhellenic Association (Panhell)
  • Interfraternity Council (IFC)
  • Unified Greek Council (UGC)

IGC seeks to build upon recognized chapters’ values and enhance students’ experiences at TCNJ through fraternity and sorority values-based lifestyles.  If students are interested in bringing a new fraternity/sorority to campus, you can direct all questions to FSL at studentlife@tcnj.edu.

Professional Organizations

At TCNJ, two business organizations do not fall under a specific council other than IGC because their mission and values differ from those of IFC, Panhell, and UGC. They are both co-ed fraternities and foster the study of business. We also have one women’s music fraternity. You can contact the IGC executive board with any questions about these organizations at igc@tcnj.edu.

  • Delta Sigma Pi
  • Sigma Alpha Iota
