Title IX and Freedom of Association

The Fraternity & Sorority Political Action Committee support candidates who will defend and uphold provisions in Higher Education legislation that:

  • protect the free association rights of students at public institutions
  • protect the 501 (c)(3) status of single-sex, non-profit organizations such as fraternities and sororities

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.

Student Housing and Safety

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.
