  • Graduate & Faculty Ministry (GFM) groups that may require a dual affiliation with InterVarsity and another organization.
  • Campus groups that are new to InterVarsity and are exploring affiliation or association.
  • Chapters that are in the process of being planted and do not yet have student leaders chosen who can sign the affiliation or association documents.
