Organizational Misconduct  

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 present;
  • 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 organization;
  • Members attempted to conceal activity of the event or involvement of other members; and
  • Related to the initiation, admission, or continuation of organizational membership.
