Trojan Greek Parent Clubs

At USC, the Greek community has special opportunities for parents to be involved.

Most chapters have an active parent club who host various family events throughout the year. To support the chapter parent clubs, there is an Intersorority Parents Council (ISPC) and an Interfraternity Parents Council (IFPC). These groups plan four meetings with university speakers throughout the academic year and provide support to programming and distribute scholarships to outstanding Greek members.

As parents, you play an important role in the continued development and success of your student. Feel free to get involved by joining a parents club or parents council and be sure to check back regularly for continual updates.
