Policy Violations

Disciplinary action

All groups using university space are expected to adhere to all university policies, regulations, guidelines and all local, state, and federal laws, which includes adhering to scheduled event times and properly canceling events. Upon satisfactory proof that an organization has violated any such university policy, rule, or regulation, the organization may be subject to disciplinary action. University departments and non-university groups will be subject to administrative sanction. Groups will also be held responsible for any expenses incurred due to infractions. The basic procedure will be:

  • First offense within one academic year. A letter will be issued to the organization with a description of the incident and an explanation of any charges that are to be billed to the group because of the incident.
  • Second offense within one academic year. A letter will be issued to the organization with a description of the incident and an explanation of any charges that are to be billed to the group because of the incident.
  • Third offense within one academic year. A letter will again be issued to the organization, and a student conduct incident report will be completed and filed with the office of student conduct programs. Group will be subject to loss of scheduling privileges for remainder of academic year or longer, based on the nature of the offense.
