As groups affiliated with the University of North
Florida, student organizations are entitled certain rights and privileges.
Therefore, student organizations are responsible for abiding by the Student
Code of Conduct. "Student organizations" refers to the University’s athletic
teams, identity-based organizations, fraternities and sororities, and clubs registered under the Student Involvement Center. This also includes organizations that are acting
as de facto student organizations, according to the Code of Conduct.
The determination of whether a case concerns individuals or
the organization will be determined on a case by case basis by the hearing
administrator. However, both the organization and individuals can be
adjudicated throughout the conduct process.
Factors used to determine whether an alleged Code violation
was committed by an organization include, but are not limited to:
- A reasonable person would associate the behavior
with the organization;
- Number of members from the student organization
- Executive Board/Leadership had knowledge of the
alleged misconduct or incident;
- Whether the alleged misconduct was committed
with organizational finances or within property associated with the
- Members attempted to conceal activity of the
event or involvement of other members; and
- Related to the initiation, admission, or
continuation of organizational membership.
