Community Conduct History

In an effort to be transparent and hold our groups to the highest standards, the Office of Sorority & Fraternity Life has made a commitment to share information regarding our community’s conduct history beginning in Fall 2016. Conduct history will remain on this page for five (5) years.

This webpage is updated at least once a month. As of June 14, 2021, this website is reflective of current statuses and history.

Suspension

In cases of serious or repeated misconduct, a student organization’s University registration may be revoked. These organizations are not recognized by the University. No one should be acting on behalf of these organizations (i.e. collecting dues, hosting events or recruiting members). Individuals should not be joining or be attending events with suspended organizations; student groups should not be co-hosting events with suspended organizations.

Deferred Suspension

A Deferred Suspension is the strictest form of probation for an organization. It is a designated period of time during which a student organization while continuing to be active, is given an opportunity to demonstrate the ability to abide by the Standards of Conduct. A student organization may be placed on Deferred Suspension for serious misconduct or in the case of repeated misconduct. If the student organization is found responsible for any additional violation(s) of the Standards of Conduct while the organization is on Deferred Suspension, then the sanction of Suspension will be the minimum sanction that will be imposed in a Formal Hearing on the subsequent misconduct. Student organizations who are placed on Deferred Suspension are also generally given developmental sanctions.

Chapter Council Deferred Suspension End Date
No organizations are currently on Deferred Suspension

Social Probation

Social Probation prohibits a student organization from sponsoring or participating in or hosting specified social activities or participating in University-affiliated activities (e.g., Homecoming, All Sing, Carnicus, intramurals). Violation of the Standards of Conduct during the social probationary period could result in more serious penalties including revocation of University registration.

Chapter Council Social Probation End Date
No organizations are currently on Social Probation.

* See below for detailed conduct history by organization


Disciplinary Probation

Disciplinary Probation is the lowest level of probation for a student organization. Disciplinary Probation means that a student organization is permitted to retain University registration on a probationary status. It is often coupled with educational requirements. It does not restrict social privileges but rather serves as an indication that the organization is not in good disciplinary standing. Violation of the Standards of Conduct during the probationary period could result in more serious penalties including social probation or revocation of University registration.

Delta Delta Delta Panhellenic 9/1/2021
Sigma Alpha Epsilon IFC 12/10/2021
Sigma Phi Epsilon IFC 12/21/2021

* See below for detailed conduct history by organization


Loss or Restriction of Privileges

Per the Student Code of Conduct, a loss or restriction of privileges sanction means the organization has had specific privileges and abilities limited. These restrictions can include, but are not limited to, representing the University in any official manner, the use or access to University spaces (including on-campus housing), participation in University, Fraternity/Sorority Council, social, or co-hosted social activities. Violation of these restrictions could result in more serious penalties including suspension.
