CAUSE FOR DISCIPLINARY ACTION AGAINST STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS

In the event of such violation or injury, the University investigating officer shall follow the disciplinary procedures for non-academic matters in UWS Chapter 17. If, in a fair hearing, the organization's activity or activities are found to have caused such violation or injury, the organization shall be subject to reprimand, probation for up to two years, or suspension of the group's University recognition for up to two years.

If placed on probation, the organization shall be subject to automatic suspension for two full years if subsequent sponsored activity or activities are found through the above-mentioned procedures to have caused such violation or injury during the period of probation.

If suspended, the organization must reapply for recognition as a University organization. With such application, the organization must provide written assurance that the action which led to the suspension will not recur. That assurance shall include an explanation of how the organization will avoid the situation which led to the suspension. In reapplying for recognition, the organization shall follow the steps described in Starting a New Student Organization.
