Judicial Procedures for Student Organizations
Student Affairs/Office of the Vice-Chancellor
The Chancellor or his/her designee is designated as the primary officer for administration of discipline for unacceptable conduct or conduct which involves infractions of the University rules and regulations by a student organization and will initiate disciplinary action in accordance with these regulations.
The Chancellor or his/her designee shall investigate any reported student organization misconduct before initiating formal disciplinary procedures and give the registered officers of the student organization the opportunity to present their personal version of the incident or occurrence. The Chancellor or his/her designee may discuss, consult and advise with the registered officers of any organization whose conduct is called into question. The registered officers or their representative shall attend such consultations as requested by the Chancellor or his/her designee and shall be given a copy of these procedures. The Chancellor or his/her designee, in making his/her investigation and disposition, may utilize student courts and boards to make recommendations which shall be considered in exercising the authority vested in him/her.
The Chancellor or his/her designee, after investigation, and when acceptable to the student organization, shall have the authority to impose appropriate discipline. Where the disposition proposed by the Chancellor or his/her designee in the preliminary proceedings is not accepted by the student organization in writing, the student organization shall have the rights of notice, hearing and formal procedures as hereinafter set forth before the Student Conduct Committee. The Chancellor or his/her designee shall fix a reasonable time within which the student organization shall accept or reject a proposed informal disposition. A failure of the student organization to either accept or reject such proposed disposition within the time fixed shall be deemed acceptance, and in such event, the proposed disposition shall become final upon expiration of time. If the student organization rejects the informal disposition, its signed statement shall be forwarded to the Student Conduct Committee. The Chancellor or his/her designee, at his/her discretion, may refer cases to the Student Conduct Committee without first offering informal disposition.
The Chancellor may, at any time, temporarily suspend a student organization from University recognition pending formal procedures where he/she finds and believes from information coming to his/her attention that the presence of any organization on campus would seriously disrupt the University or constitute a danger to the health, safety or welfare of the University. The suspending officer shall promptly notify the Chancellor or his/her designee to initiate the appropriate disciplinary procedure within five days.
Formal Procedure and Disposition
The Student Conduct Committee shall be appointed by the Chancellor and shall have the authority to impose appropriate discipline upon any student organization appearing before it, including, but not limited to, suspension of action, official warning, written reprimand, disciplinary probation, recommended loss of University recognition or other action deemed appropriate by the Committee.
