Student Code of Conduct - University Registered Student Organizations or Clubs

  1. Student organizations or clubs may be charged with alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. Initial investigation and/or resolution may be addressed by the Department of Campus Involvement staff or other appropriate department staff using University student conduct procedures.
  2. A student organization or club and its officers may be held collectively and/or individually responsible when violations of the Student Code of Conduct by those associated with the organization or club have received the tacit or overt consent or encouragement of the organization or club or of the organization’s or club’s leaders, officers, or spokespersons. Usually, if more than three members are present at a function, it may be considered a student organization or club sponsored event.
  3. The officers, leaders, or any identifiable spokesperson for a student organization or club may be directed by the Student Conduct Administrator to take appropriate action(s) designed to prevent or end violations of the Student Code of Conduct by the student organization or club or by any persons associated with the student organization or club who can reasonably be said to be acting in the student organization or club’s behalf.
  4. Failure to make reasonable efforts to comply with the directives of University representatives will be considered a violation of the Student Code of Conduct by the officers, leaders or spokespersons for the student organization or club and by the student organization or club itself.
