The Office of Student Affairs has the right to review and revoke the recognition of all student organizations and to impose sanctions based on behavior and violation of University standards.

In cases involving recognized student groups, fraternities, and sororities, the Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs or his/her designee will determine the type of hearing appropriate to an offense. In cases of such seriousness as to call into question a group’s continued recognition or housing privileges, the University Judicial Board will be convened.

Possible sanctions of a hearing include the following:

  1. A letter of warning
  2. A period of probation with specified conditions and naming of a supervisory committee
  3. Revocation of housing privileges in the case of a fraternity or sorority
  4. Revocation of the university charter in the case of a fraternity or sorority and loss of recognition in the case of other organizations

The appropriate student governing board will be informed of any sanctions issued by a university judicial board against a student organization.

Organizations have the right to appeal the decision. Such an appeal must be made in writing within five business days of receipt of the written decision and must specify the grounds for the appeal. The appeal must be directed to the Vice President for Student Affairs, who will review the case and determine whether  to refer it to the University Appeals Board.
