Student Organization Code of Conduct

Your Rights and Responsibilities

Each recognized student organization at SJSU is responsible for adhering to the Student Organization Code of Conduct (PDF). This Code, specific to student organizations, outlines organizational behavioral and operational expectations, including adherence to the University's policies and procedures, and State of California's laws pertaining to hazing. Please reference pages 4-5 for a detailed explanation of the hazing protocols as proscribed by this Code. In addition, individual students are responsible for adherence to the SJSU Student Code of Conduct (PDF). Poor behavior by individual members of a student organization may be adjudicated dually through the Student AND Student Organization Codes of Conduct.

The Office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development oversees the application of both Codes. Lower level student organization offenses are adjudicated through Student Involvement processes, while all individual student offenses and upper level student organization offenses are adjudicated through Student Conduct and Ethical Development.
