Student Organization Conduct Status Report

Student Organizations on Formal Disciplinary Status

Northwestern University expects its student organizations to "exemplify Northwestern's community principles and values" and "engage in socially responsible behavior." The Student Code of Conduct also outlines the prohibited conduct for students, groups of students, and student organizations. Violations of these rules can subject a group or organization to sanctions.

Below is a list of student organizations and/or University-sponsored groups that, as a result of violating University rules and regulations or accepting responsibility for organizational misconduct, have been placed on a formal disciplinary status. (Individual students' records are protected by federal law and University policy).

Please keep in mind: Only organizations that are subject to the sanctions outlined below are included on this list, and groups and organizations listed here may have been assigned other sanctions or requirements in addition to those outlined below. Additionally, groups are not added to this list until conduct matters become final; therefore, groups with pending conduct matters are not listed here. In the event a group has engaged in multiple incidents, only the most current sanctions are included on this list. The list itself will be updated at the end of each quarter or as otherwise necessary.

For further explanation on the sanction(s)/Restriction(s) outlined below, see pages 45-46 in the Student Handbook
