Club or Organization Policy Violations

The Director of Student Activities may apply sanctions to a university-recognized club or organization when there is reasonable belief that the organization has violated or intends to violate the policies governing university organizations. Sanctions may also be applied if club or organization members fail to comply with directions of the university’s administrative officers, security, faculty, or staff acting within the purview of their authority. Sanctions may include one or more of the following:

  • Warning – A notice, in writing, to the organization that the group is violating or has violated any institutional regulations.
  • Probation – A written reprimand for violation of specified regulations. Probation is for a designated period of time and includes the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the organization is found to be violating an institutional regulation(s) during the probationary period.
  • Loss of Privileges – Denial of specified privileges for a designated period of time.
  • Suspension – Dismissal of the club/organization from the university’s list of recognized club/organizations for a definite period of time, after which the group may be eligible for recognition as a university-sponsored organization. Conditions for recognition may be specified.
