The four councils of Fraternity & Sorority Life at the University of Iowa are coming together to plan programming for Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April.
IFC, PHC, MGC, & NPHC have a broad slate of speakers, events, and overall awareness of this incredibly important month, including:
Collaborating with two Campus partners, fundraising as well as working together to raise awareness around sexual assault.

Selling shirts and buttons to raise money and awareness for these organizations and sexual assault! Our slogan for the month is: “It’s Time to Talk About It”.
