Student Organization Conduct Process
The Office of the Dean of Students is responsible for the administration of university rules for registered and sponsored student organizations. Student Conduct and Academic Integrity investigates and resolves alleged violations by student organizations.
Student Conduct and Academic Integrity routinely receives reports of alleged violations of university rules from campus offices (e.g., University of Texas Police Department, University Housing and Dining, Information Technology Services, Parking and Transportation Services, etc.) as well as faculty and students.
While each situation is unique, prohibited conduct is organized into tiers. The tier of any alleged violation will determine the resolution process for that incident.
The three tiers outlined below are meant to serve as a guide; the Dean of Students maintains sole discretion in determining which process should be used to address allegations of student organization misconduct.
Prescribed Resolution Process
Alcohol Misconduct– Providing to Minors
Misuse of or unauthorized entry into University Property
Failing to complete sanctions assigned through the conduct process
Violation of Local, State or Federal Law
Destruction of Property
Hazing (behavior that does not involve allegations of potential violence or forced consumption of alcohol/food)
Failure to Comply
Track C Cases
Hazing (any allegation that involves potentially violent behavior or forced consumption of alcohol/food)

The official documentation for each resolution process is detailed in Institutional Rules Subchapter 6-500. Please review this subchapter for specific information on the Prescribed Resolution Process, Partnership Process, and University Investigation.
