Inactive Status and Loss of Recognition
Before an organization is declared inactive, the organization’s president may request a hearing before the Student Activities Committee. At the hearing the president must provide evidence that demonstrates the organization’s ability to continue. Loss of recognition may result from the following:
- Failure to maintain the required number of members in the organization (a minimum of ten currently enrolled students);
- Failure to maintain a faculty advisor;
- Failure to provide lists of officers or constitutional changes as required;
- Failure to submit financial reports as required by the Student Activities Committee; and
- Failure to comply with the University policies and guidelines, e.g., failure to hold regular meetings, submit quarterly activities and financial reports, etc.
An organization may declare itself inactive for a given quarter or quarters by submitting a written request to the Student Activities Committee. Until the organization corrects all deficiencies that caused it to become inactive, the following sanctions apply:
- The organization will lose its recognized status;
- The organization’s name will not appear in campus publications; and
- The organization will be ineligible for any awards or honors available to recognized organizations.
