Message from the Council President
My name is Anirudh Kurup, most people know me as Rudy, and I am the Interfraternity Council President at the University of Connecticut. The IFC is the governing council for 12 men’s social fraternities. We strive to uphold the four pillars of the fraternity and sorority community which are citizenship, scholarship, fellowship, and leadership. Our community is focused on bettering men through a foundation of brotherhood that propels one to achieve their personal, professional, and academic goals. Those in our community benefit from educational programming, leadership workshops, philanthropic and social events, along with countless other unique opportunities.
This year, the IFC’s main goals are to increase intercouncil relations, better our campus engagement, and redesign our commitment to a diverse and inclusive community. In America, we continue to face challenges that relate to bigotry, prejudice, and discrimination against marginalized groups and communities. As fraternity men, some who identify with these communities, we acknowledge and denounce all forms of hate and intolerance. That is why one of our main goals for the year is focusing on what “Diversity and Inclusion” means for the IFC and how to embody these values in our day to day interactions. Last year, IFC contributed to establishing an anti-racism course at UConn and this year we will work to further this initiative along with others. Through engagement with the university and other community members, we hope to have a safe, successful, and fulfilling year. Please reach out if you have any questions or interest in the IFC.
