  1. Upon recognition by the College, student organizations become responsible for acting in accordance with College policies and all other applicable College regulations.

    • When the violation is directly related to the organization’s activities or an environment created by the organization.
  3. Alleged violations will be adjudicated as outlined in this handbook for non-academic matters.
  4. The following sanctions may be imposed upon student organizations found to have violated College policy:
    • The sanctions of Warning and Probation plus other Educational Sanctions as outlined in this handbook of this process;
