Fraternal Information Programming Group (FIPG)
The Fraternal Information Programming Group (FIPG) was initially founded to help offset rising insurance costs for Greek-letter organizations through the sharing of resources and development of effective risk management plans and practices. Today, FIPG represents over 70% of all men's and women's fraternity members in North America. All four UNC Asheville Fraternities & Sororities are FIPG member organizations. FIPG is a consortium of men's and women's fraternities and sororities which provides leadership in establishing and developing policies and practices for member organizations, educates and supports undergraduates, alumni/ae and Greek systems in risk management, and works to improve and enhance the image and reputation of all Greek-letter organizations through risk management.
