challenges " Our most important issue this year and every year is Greek image and how to make it better, " said Vice President of Internal Affairs for the IFC Jim Vanek. In addition to regulating social functions and making hazing policies, the IFC also provided pro- gramming on important issues such as sexual assault. They also brought alumni and University administrators together to proactively talk about issues concerning the fraternities on campus. The IFC pro- vided National Organizations with the op- portunity toexpandtothe University ' s cam- pus and start successful chapters. Finally, the IFC coordinated fraternity rush in the fall and winter. The IFC ' s power extended far beyond just making the Greek image better. One of the IFC ' s main powers was the regulation of inappropriate actions by fraternities. " You have to be consistently doing things wrong to get kicked off campus. There is no formula to it. It is usually pretty clear-cut whether a chapter is a benefit or a detri- ment to the system, " said IFC President Marc Hustvedt. If a fraternity committed an inappropriate action then the social viola- tion was reported to the Social Responsi- bility Committee before going to theGreek Activity Review Panel for a ruling. Hazing violations went to the Hazing Task Force to be investigated before going to the GARP for a ruling. Any community issue, whether it was a Greek community, University com- munity or Ann Arbor community issue, was handled by the IFC Executive Board. Yet, there were challenges within the IFC this year. The IFC contained many dif- ferent committees and individuals, which created the challenge of getting everyone on the same page about what rules should be implemented and which policies were the correct ones to be followed. Another challenge came from fraternity chapters that challenged the IFC ' s policies and al- ways appealed their social violations. To combat those challenges the IFC worked on making the social policies safer and the hazing policies clearer, which madeit easier to hold chapters accountable for their ac- tions. The Executive Board and Legislative Bodies looked to make the Greek commu- nity a better place. " I love being on IFC. The best part of the position is working in an environment with a group of guys that really care about the Greek System and put everything they have into making it the best it can be, " said Vanek.
