Student organizations may have the following sanctions imposed on them if they are found to have violated College policy:
Behavioral Contract. The Director of Student Activities & Greek Life or their designee may meet with a student to develop a behavioral contract. This is an agreement between the organization and the College outlining the behaviors or tasks the organization or its members have to perform or avoid, the criteria for an acceptable level of performance or completion, the reinforcement/support (i.e. activities, privileges, or resources), and the timeline for completion. Violation of any of the terms outlined in the Behavioral Contract by the organization or its members may result in further disciplinary action.
Conduct Probation. A written reprimand for violating specified regulations. Probation is for a designated period of time and includes the probability of more severe sanctions, such as organizational suspension or organizational expulsion, if the organization is found to have further violated College policies.
Educational Sanctions. An organization may be required to participate in an educational program to enhance their learning from the behavior exhibited during the incident. Other discretionary sanctions include, but are not limited to, work assignments, essays, substance use advising, service to the College, community service, or other discretionary assignments.
Formal Warning. A notice in writing to the organization that the organization is violating or has violated College policy.
Loss of Social Host Privileges. A loss of privilege to host social events on campus, in fraternity chapter houses or off-campus for a specified period of time. Social probation may include all events or only social events with alcohol.
Loss of other selected rights and privileges for a specified period of time. This includes use of the College’s name, use of College facilities and services, use of College or Student Senate funds, participation in events, participation in intramural sports, and recruitment of members.
Mandated Advisor Presence. An advisor that is registered with the College must be in attendance at certain events or activities as determined by the sanctioning body.
Membership Review. An assessment of each member within the organization conducted by an organization’s advisors or headquarters to determine who should continue membership in the organization. Membership reviews can only be assigned as sanctions to social fraternities and sororities.
Organizational Expulsion. Permanent loss of privileges, including College recognition. When a College organization fails to fulfill the College’s expectations of previously imposed conduct probation or has what a reasonable person would consider an egregious violation of College policy, the Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students may decide to permanently terminate the recognition of the organization. This could include actions taken by unauthorized/unrecognized members, or violations by individuals acting on behalf of the group while suspended from campus.
Organizational Suspension. Loss of all privileges, including College recognition, for a specified period of time. When a College organization fails to fulfill the College’s expectations or violates the terms of previously imposed conduct probation, the Vice President for College Life and Dean of Students may decide to terminate the recognition of or suspend the organization.
Removal of an Officer. An officer of the organization that was responsible for the violation directly or through negligence is no longer allowed to hold that position.
Restitution and Fines. Compensation for loss, damage, injury or assessment of a monetary fine for violation College policy. This may take the form of appropriate service and/or monetary or material replacement.
Restorative Justice Conference. Brings together the person(s) who was harmed and the leadership of the organization who caused them harm. The purpose of the conference is to allow for those who caused harm to hear from the harmed party and learn how they can repair the harm caused. At the conclusion of the restorative justice conference a voluntary agreement is made with the input from all parties to ensure no further harm is caused.
