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 New Mexico? VIDEO

Fraternities and sororities in New Mexico are held to high standards under college and university codes of conduct. When student organization misconduct policies are violated, schools can bring charges against individual members and organizational leadership, including officers. Common allegations can include violations of alcohol and drug policies. Hazing and pledge activities can also lead to serious consequences. Harassment and sexual assault under Title IX are also common charges.

Generally, student organizations and their members can be found responsible as a group for actions committed by members in violation of codes of conduct. In addition, disciplinary action taken against student organizations can be separate from that taken against individual members. To deter future violations, sanctions in many instances can be severe and can include 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 speak to school administrators or anyone in the organization without taking the necessary precautions. You need to prepare the necessary defense and response based upon the facts and circumstances regarding 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 New Mexico and they should be involved from as early as possible in the case.

New Mexico 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:
