The Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils serve a unique role in the fraternity and sorority community at Linfield University. These governing bodies determine policies, procedures, rules, and standards for the fraternity and sorority chapters that fall under their purview. There are currently two governing councils at the McMinnville campus:
- Interfraternity Council (IFC) - the governing body for the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC), professional and independent men's and co-ed fraternity chapters.
- Linfield Panhellenic Council (LPC) - the governing body for the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), professional and independent women's fraternity and sorority chapters.
In order for a fraternity or sorority to operate at Linfield University, they must be recognized as an affiliate group of their inter/national fraternity or sorority, or local organization, otherwise known as a chapter. Linfield University fraternities and sororities also maintain recognition with the College by upholding the standards set forth in the Relationship Statement for fraternity and sorority chapters.
