What should I do if I am in a fraternity or sorority and I am charged with student organization misconduct at my college or university in Arizona? VIDEO

Fraternities and sororities in Arizona are held to high standards under college and universities' codes of conduct. When student organization misconduct policies are violated, schools will bring action against individual members and organization leadership, including officers. Common allegations can include violations of alcohol and drug policies, hazing, and pleasure activities can also lead to serious consequences. Harassment and sexual assault under Title 9 are also common charges.

Generally, student organizations and their members can be found responsible as a group for actions committed by members that violate codes of conduct. In addition, disciplinary action taken against student organizations can be different from that taken against individual members.

To deter future violations, sanctions can often be severe, including suspension and expulsion. You must understand how your case will be investigated and adjudicated by familiarizing yourself with the applicable policies and process. You should not talk to school administrators or anyone in the organization until you can take the necessary precautions.

You must prepare the necessary defense and response based upon the particular facts and circumstances involved with the specific incident. An experienced attorney advisor will be your best ally to help you understand and navigate the organization misconduct process involving your fraternity or sorority in Arizona, and they should be involved from as early as possible in the case.

Arizona colleges and universities, and also national fraternities and sororities, where Joseph D. Lento can help as your or your student organization member's advisor during investigations, hearings, and appeals include, but are not limited to, the following:
