Professional Fraternity Council

Professional Fraternity Council

The vision for Professional Fraternity Councils is the bringing together of Professional Fraternity Association (PFA) groups to collaborate and educate. More specifically, the purpose of the PFC is to promote and enhance professional fraternities on campus by serving as a cooperative forum for sharing ideas, information, experiences, and concerns, increasing the awareness of professional fraternities on campus; and creating a spirit of fellowship among students. The result is that students are able to further explore their passions and interests alongside those that share these ambitions, creating a spirit of fellowship among students.
