XI. Miscellaneous
A. Back it Up: What is the InterGreek Committee (IGC)?

The InterGreek Committee was established in the Spring of 2002 in order to build more consistent communication and collaboration between the four Greek Coucils: currently InterFraternity Council, InterSorority Council, Multicultural Greek Council, and National Pan-Hellenic Council. Visit the Cav Daily archive for their earliest coverage of IGC activities: http://cavalierdaily.com/CVArticle.asp?ID=14090&pid=933. The IGC is responsible for large projects, events, and conversations that represent the interests of the entire Greek community at U.Va..

Each of the four Councils delegates two representatives to serve on the IGC annually. Some of the major projects for IGC include, but are not limited to: Greek Awards and the State of the Greek System Address (late Spring), Greek Sustained Dialogue, InterGreek Habitat House (aforementioned), Greek Week, and Leadership Training for Executive members of all four Greek Councils. If you are interested in serving on IGC in the future, please speak with your Council's leadership.

B. Quote of the Week

People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by a majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote - a very different thing.
