Student Organization Handbook – Section VI. C.

Section VI. Appeals and Conduct Processes

C. Conduct Process

Any member of the Boise State University community—student, faculty, staff or student organization—may file charges against 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 Student Rights & Responsibilities 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.

Boise State University’s Student Code of Conduct, Article 4, Section 23, defines a violation of “Group Offenses” as the following:

“A violation may include, but is not limited to, actions by organizations, societies, clubs and similarly organized groups that result in violations of university policies. Sanctions for groups may result in permanent or temporary suspension, loss of recognition or charter, social probation, or other actions deemed appropriate by the university. An individual involved in a group offense and/or sanction can also be subject to individual charges and sanctions.”
