Explanation of Statuses
A University Reprimand indicates that the organization’s behavior is inappropriate for a member of the academic community. A University Reprimand is maintained in the organization’s disciplinary file for one year and would serve as a basis for further sanctioning should subsequent violations occur. If there are no further violations within that one year period, the file is destroyed.
A University Censure in an official communication that an organization’s behavior is inappropriate for a member of the academic community. A University Censure is maintained in the organization’s disciplinary file for four years and would serve as a basis for further sanctioning should subsequent violations occur.
Conduct Probation is a strong communication that an organization student is no longer in good disciplinary standing with the academic community. Any subsequent violations of the Student Code will be evaluated in the context of the organization’s probationary status. Conduct Probation is maintained for seven years after the end of the probationary period.
Revocation of registered organization status shall be imposed upon an organization when the hearing body determines that the organization’s relationship with the university must be terminated. When revocation is imposed upon an organization, the organization may petition the original hearing body for recognition by the university after the specified time. Revocation records are maintained indefinitely. At such time as an organization successfully achieves recognition by the university, the organization is placed on Conduct Probation for two years, unless mitigating circumstances warrant a different sanction.
(Formal Sanction) Held in Abeyance
In rare cases, the Senate Committee, appropriate subcommittee, or DO may determine that a certain sanction is the appropriate formal sanction for an organization, but strong mitigating circumstances warrant holding the formal sanction in abeyance. The organization will continue to be recognized under restrictions and conditions. An organization found to have violated the conditions or restrictions of a formal sanction held in abeyance will minimally have the formal sanction imposed. Formal sanctions held in abeyance for organizations must include an expiration date.
