The Interfraternity Council (IFC) is the governing body of all men’s social fraternities on Michigan Tech's campus. The body is composed of one delegate from each of the twelve fraternities. These delegates work in various committees to improve the fraternity and sorority community through events sponsored by the individual organizations, as well as some Michigan Tech traditions. The Council believes in constantly improving relations with the University and the Houghton City Council. In an effort to accomplish this, the Council has standing liaisons on several committees within the university, including the Undergraduate Student Government, as well as a liaison who attends the bi-weekly City Council meetings. Through actions of the IFC, fraternities on campus have achieved a unique working relationship with many other student organizations, as well as the University.
The Panhellenic Council is the governing body of eight women’s sororities at Michigan Tech. Each of the sororities has two delegates on Panhellenic Council. The object of Panhellenic is to develop and maintain sorority life and inter-sorority relations. Panhellenic works together to recruit women interested in joining a sorority, raise money for a variety of non-profit women's organizations, and builds relations between the sororities.

The Relationship Statement for Fraternity & Sorority Life serves as a means to more clearly define the synergetic relationship between Michigan Technological University and its fraternities and sororities.
