Discrimination by a student organization (Student Misconduct)

No student organization may discriminate against anyone in the university community based on a protected characteristic.

Discrimination is unfair treatment based on a protected characteristic that is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive to unreasonably (i) interfere with, (ii) limit, or (iii) deprive an individual from participating in or benefitting from the university’s education or employment programs, activities, or living environment.

The totality of known circumstances, including the nature, frequency, intensity, location, context, and duration of the conduct, will be considered.

Discrimination in membership selection based on sex is permitted for those organizations that are exempted from Title IX compliance.
