Reporting an Incident
If you believe that you or someone you know is being treated unfairly or harmed through behaviors, such as hazing, file a report by contacting the Office of Student Conduct & Community Standards.
FSL Chapter Statuses
Beginning February 1, 2015 the University of Oregon will post the statuses of chapters who have been found responsible for a UO policy violation. In addition to the chapter statues, chapters may be required to complete educational sanctions to prevent future policy violations. Chapters listed below are currently on University sanctions:
- Alpha Epsilon Pi - Disciplinary Probation (until December 9, 2017) - Hazing, Drug Possession/Use, Alcohol under 21
- Alpha Sigma Phi - Disciplinary Probation (until October 22, 2017) - Hazing , Alcohol under 21
- Phi Delta Theta - Suspension (until November 4, 2017) - Repeated alcohol violations, drug use/possession, and disrupting the University
- Sigma Pi - Suspension (until Fall 2018) - Alcohol violation, hazing violation
Current Unrecognized Fraternities & Sororities
WARNING: Some groups that were once recognized fraternities or sororities at the University of Oregon may attempt to continue to operate despite having lost recognition. Any operation of these groups is considered underground activity, is likely in violation of university policy, and is not sanctioned by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. Therefore, students should carefully consider their potential student conduct record before associating with an unrecognized group.
- Beta Theta Pi (closed and disbanded by the General Fraternity)
- Phi Delta Theta
- Sigma Pi
Greek Conduct Process
Information about University of Oregon's Greek Conduct process can be found in the Greek Conduct Resource Manual.
In deciding upon a sanction SCCS and/or FSL considers precedent, organizational accountability, self-sanctioning, the severity of the offense and organizational conduct history.
In light of the facts and circumstances of each case, the following sanctions, or combination of sanctions (with or without appropriate modifications) may be imposed upon any student organization found to have violated the Student Organization Conduct Code. Certain sanctions may result in a financial cost to the student organization. If a student organization does not complete a sanction by the required deadline, SCCS and/or FSL, working in conjunction with University officers and/or organization advisors, may place restrictions on the organization.
(a) Reprimand (written or verbal).
(b) Service Hours - completion of tasks under the supervision of a University department or outside agency.
(c) Educational Activities - attendance by members of the student organization at educational programs, interviews with appropriate officials, planning and implementing educational programs, or other educational activities.
(d) Restitution - Only in cases involving University property. Restitution must be submitted to the appropriate University department in a manner that is approved by that University department.
(e) Loss of Privileges - Some of the restrictions that may be placed on the student organization during this period include, but are not limited to barring or limiting some or all of the organization's activities and/or privileges (including, but not limited to: social activities; intramural competition; organizational competition; Homecoming; eligibility to receive any University award or honorary recognition; privilege to occupy a position of leadership or responsibility in any University student organization governing body, publication, or activity; or ability to represent the University in an official capacity or position), or contact with another specified organization(s).
(f) Disciplinary Probation - A period of time during which any further violation of the Student Organization Conduct Code puts the student organization’s status with the University in jeopardy. If the student organization is found "responsible" for another violation of the Code during the period of Disciplinary Probation, serious consideration will be given to imposing a sanction of Suspension or Dismissal from the University.
(g) Suspended Suspension - A status in which a student organization is given a specific period of time to demonstrate the ability to abide by community standards and expectations or face an immediate suspension of a designated period of time.
a. Suspensions may also be suspended pending adherence to or completion of specific additional conditions or requirements. If a student organization on deferred suspension is found in violation of any act of misconduct (or otherwise fails to comply with specified conditions or requirements), the originally defined suspension takes effect immediately without further review. Additional student conduct sanctions appropriate to any new act of misconduct may also be taken.
(h) Suspension - A Student Organization loses University recognition and all privileges associated with such recognition for a specified period. This may include restricted access to campus and/or other specified activities. Some of the restrictions that may be placed on the student organization during the suspension period include, but are not limited to barring or limiting some or all of the organization's activities and/or privileges (including, but not limited to: social activities; intramural competition; organizational competition; Homecoming; eligibility to receive any University award or honorary recognition; privilege to occupy a position of leadership or responsibility in any University Greek governing body, or ability to represent the University in an official capacity or position). While on suspension the chapter loses its University recognition and/or registration for the suspension period. While an organization is suspended, it may not use University resources or participate as an organization in any University activities or events. Re-recognition is possible but not guaranteed and will only be considered after the end of the suspension period and based on meeting all re-recognition criteria and obtaining clearance from the University.
(i) Recommendation for Charter Revocation - An official request to a national office that the local chapter's charter be revoked.
** The University reserves the right to adopt sanctions as assigned by the Inter/National organization.
(a) Interim Suspension or Restriction: An interim suspension may be imposed, by the Director of Student Conduct and Community Standards, or designee, prior to the beginning of the administrative process. The interim suspension may be imposed in cases where:
a. The alleged action of the student organization may pose a threat to the well-being of the University or any of its members, or to preserve University property;
b. The student organization poses a threat of disruption or interference with the normal operations of the University.
During any interim suspension, the organization shall be required to discontinue with all organizational activities. The organization will be denied access to all University activities and privileges for which the organization might be eligible. In certain circumstances, organizational leadership may be restricted from communication with the organizational membership.
Emergency Action and relevant procedure is dictated by the Student Conduct Code (Section 6).
