"Disciplinary Status and History of Recognized Student Organizations at Georgia Tech" (Re-post)
Aug 15, 2018 by Amanda Caroline Fishman
"Student Organization Leaders and Advisors,
In an effort to provide increased transparency to the Georgia Tech community, beginning August 15, 2018, the Center for Student Engagement in partnership with the Office of Student Integrity will provide information to disclose the current disciplinary status and disciplinary history of Recognized Student Organizations of Georgia Tech. Student organizational disciplinary history will be posted and archived publicly on the Office of Student Integrity website and linked from both the Fraternity & Sorority Life and Student Organizations websites. Only incidents occurring after August 15, 2018 for which an organization is found responsible will be publicly shared.
Records will be posted as often as monthly throughout the semester and will include each organization's name, the violation/s for which the organization was found responsible, date of occurrence, the sanction, the organization status, a short summary of the incident, and the schedule to complete the sanction. This information will help students make better-informed decisions about organizations they may plan to join and provide greater transparency to the Georgia Tech community regarding disciplinary outcomes. All information within the public posting will adhere to FERPA and information privacy regulations.
It is key to reiterate that student organizations are responsible for abiding by University policy, the GT Student Code of Conduct and all other agreements between the University and the student organization. For questions about this plan, please contact the Office of Student Integrity or the Center for Student Engagement.
