IVCF's philosophy was built on student leadership of campus groups, served by staff workers. Inter-Varsity has made a significant contribution to American Evangelicalism through its grass roots leadership training of students, its books published by Inter-Varsity Press, its missions emphasis particularly as expressed in the triennial Urbana Student Missionary Conventions (held first in Toronto in 1946, and from 1948 afterward in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois).

Major ministry areas: Campus ministry, Inter-Varsity Press (produced HIS Magazine, 1941-1987), Twenty-One Hundred (media division), Nurses Christian Fellowship

Affiliations: Inter-Varsity is one of many member movements which comprise the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES), representing different nations.

Other historical background sources: Inter-Varsity's history is extensively documented in Keith and Gladys Hunt's For Christ and the University, published in 1991 by Inter-Varsity Press, which includes an extensive organizational time line.
