Student Organization Case Status Summaries

Please see below for a summary of active, Student Conduct Code Violations and Resulting Sanctions for Student Organizations here at UCSD.

In addition to managing the student conduct process for individuals, the Office of Student Conduct works with several campus partners, including the Center for Student Involvement, on cases regarding non-academic misconduct by Student Organizations. It is the belief of the Office of Student Conduct and these partners that students should be able to make informed choices when pursuing ways to get involved on campus. Therefore we have provided information below on Student Organizations' most recent conduct case summaries to assist students in making these decisions. Here you will find some brief information on the disciplinary status of some of our student organizations.
