Student Organization Discipline History

In an effort to provide increased transparency to the community, the university publishes the discipline records of recognized student organizations.

The publication includes all incidents that result in sanctions of Disciplinary Probation or greater, and the outcome remains published for three academic years after issuance or until the sanction is complete, if the sanction takes longer than three years to complete. 

We add records to the list as disciplinary outcomes become final post appeal period, and we remove eligible records within 30 days of the end of each academic semester.

Under each organization's name, the columns detail the Date of the Violation, Sanction, The Violation of the Code, Summary, and Scheduled Record Removal Date.
