Student organizations with (inter)national affiliations

  • All student organizations are to follow their (inter)national organization guidelines and procedures both on and off campus as well as any college policies or guidelines. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action by the college and/or the (inter)national organization. 

Accountability for Violations of the Rhodes College Standards of Conduct

  • A student organization’s violation of college regulations or failure to adhere to expected standards of conduct will be adjudicated by the appropriate administrator, as determined after initial review by the Director of Community Standards in consultation with the Director of Student Engagement, or their designees. Persistent or extreme violations at the student organization level may result in withdrawal of recognition by the College.
  • A student organization may appeal the findings of violation of regulations or standards of conduct in writing to the Vice President for Student Life, unless otherwise directed in the outcome letter. Appeals must be based on the same grounds listed under the Rhodes College policies of Student Conduct in the Student Handbook. In the event that an incident is adjudicated by a hearing board, that body’s appeal guidelines govern the appeal for that finding.

For more information about due process and rights for registered student organizations, see the Organizational Conduct section of the Student Handbook.
