The Fraternity & Sorority Political Action Committee support candidates who will defend and uphold provisions in Higher Education legislation that:
In 1972, the original language of the new Title IX Education Amendments banned same-sex organizations. Congressman Joe Waggoner, a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, sponsored an amendment exempting Greek organizations from the legislation.
In 1998, the NIC's Government Relations Committee spearheaded a movement to include "Freedom of Association" language in Higher Education Reauthorization legislation, disallowing public Universities the ability to ban fraternities and sororities from their campuses.
The Fraternity & Sorority Political Action Committee supports candidates who have shown a history of advocating on behalf of student housing and safety improvements. Provisions increasing these opportunities include the College Fire Prevention Act and the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act.
