Student Organizations and Conduct

Student organizations and fraternities are subject to the same conduct standards as individual students. Organizations are subject to the Code of Student Conduct at all times including, but not limited to, breaks between terms, during University holidays and vacations, and during periods of suspension of recognition.

An organization may be held responsible for a violation of University policy or rule when:

1. one or more of its officers, members, or authorized representatives acting as a member of the organization commit the violation;

2. the misconduct occurs at an event that is sponsored, financed, or endorsed by an organization where it is reasonable to believe that the organization’s members knew or should have known that one or more of the participants engaged in conduct that is in violation of the Code of Conduct;

3. the misconduct occurs on the premises owned, leased, or operated by the organization where it is reasonable to believe that the organization’s members knew or should have known that one or more of the participants engaged in conduct that is in violation of the Code of Conduct.

The OESCR office works in conjunction with the Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Office of Student Activities, and the Office or Recreational Sports in investigating cases of organizational conduct.
