8.1 University Conduct Process
Any member of the Boise State University community—students, faculty, staff or student organization—may report any student organization for alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. In addition, the university may initiate charges against a student when there is no other individual to act as complainant. Charges will be prepared in writing and directed to the Office of the Dean of Students for processing. Any allegation should be submitted as soon as possible after the event takes place.
The Student Code of Conduct applies to all student organizations as well as to individual students. If an organization violates the Student Code of Conduct, the individual students involved also assume responsibility for the organization’s actions, recognizing that organizations cannot exist or act without the cooperation of individual members.
Per University Policy #2020, Student Code of Conduct Section 4/R, defines a violation of “Group Offenses” as the following:
A Group Offense violation may include, but is not limited to, actions by any Student Group, organization, society, club, or similarly organized group, and the coordinated actions of three or more people, whether or not those people belong to a formally recognized group, that result in one or more violations of policy or law. Repeated individual violations of the Student Code of Conduct may constitute a group offense if there is a nexus between the behavior and an activity or location in control of the group (for example, multiple alcohol or drug-related medical transports from, or arrests made at, a group-controlled property or as a consequence of a group-sponsored event over the course of a semester).
