All University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) student clubs and organizations are required to uphold federal, state, and local government laws, as well as University policies and procedures. Furthermore, fraternities and sororities are required to comply with the Standards for National Fraternities and Sororities at UCCS.
A student club or organization may be subject to disciplinary action when it engages in a violation of law, University policy, the Student Code of Conduct, or the Standards for National Fraternities and Sororities:
The Club and Organization Standards apply to all registered and recognized student clubs and organizations, including fraternities and sororities, and will only determine disciplinary action for student clubs or organizations. The Club and Organization Disciplinary Process will be conducted through the Office of Student Life and Leadership, and overseen by the Executive Director of Student Life and Leadership, or his or her designee. Individual students who may have engaged in misconduct will be referred to the Dean of Students Office for disciplinary action under the UCCS Student Code of Conduct. While the processes are similar, outcomes and sanctions may vary.
An organizational function is any activity or event that the student club or organization authorizes.
