Know Your Rights: RSO Responsibilities

KYR - LaShaunda 2 - Banner

If you are in a RSO it is important to know that any student organization can be held responsible for its actions or the actions of one or more of its members (active or inactive).

Though this may bcome as a shock there is no minimum number of group members who must be involved in an incident before disciplinary actions may be taken against the organization. In some instances, the conduct of a single member may provide sufficient grounds for an action against the entire organization.

Misconduct of the organization act together to violate University standards of conduct;

(a) Any student organization can be held responsible for its actions or the actions of one or more of its members (active or inactive). There is no minimum number of group members who must be involved in an incident before disciplinary action may be taken against the organization. In some instances, the conduct of a single member may provide sufficient grounds for action against the entire organization. Misconduct on the part of the organization may be addressed when:

1. Members of the organization act together to violate University standards of conduct;

2. One or more members of an organization or its officers has knowledge of the incident, behavior, etc. and fails to take corrective or prohibitive action before such incident, behavior, etc. occurs or fails to stop such incident, behavior, etc. while it is occurring;

3. A violation occurs on premises and/or transportation owned, operated, or rented exclusively by the student organization;

4. A pattern of individual violations has occurred and/or continues to occur without adequate control, response, or sanction on the part of the student organization or its leaders;

5. The student organization or related activities provided the context for the violation;

6. The student organization chooses to protect one or more individual offenders who are members, alumni, former members, or guests of the student organization from official actions.

The full information concerning RSO’s responsibilities can be found in the Golden Rule Handbook under the section UCF-5.011 (principals of group responsibility).

For specific questions on what will happen if you are found in violation of Golden Rule you can contact the Office of Student Conduct.


A hard copy of Golden Rule Handbook and The Rules of Conduct can be found in the  Office of Student Conduct. For more information on your rights and to receive personal guidance through the student conduct process, be sure contact LaShaunda Hayes, SGA’s Judicial Adivsor, at sgajudicialadvisor@ucf.edu.
