Suggested Minimum Sanctions for Greek Organizations and Greek Residences

These guidelines have been established to provide standardization of sanctions for various infractions of institutional regulations. They are intended to suggest an appropriate minimum reaction to a particular violation if an organization is found responsible by an Administrative Hearing Officer or a Disciplinary Hearing Board. Abusive situations, lack of cooperation, and other case variables may result in more significant sanctions.

Changes and/or additions to the suggested minimum judicial sanctions may be made at any time during an academic year and circulated to the campus community by appropriate and reasonable means.
