Student Organization Misconduct

Student Organizations

At Creighton, we hope to develop the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. Involvement in student organizations are a large part of that student experience. Involvement outside of the classroom provides great opportunities to develop leadership and professional skills, meet students outside of your academic major, and find your niche at Creighton.

Creighton has a large variety of organizations where students can find involvement. With over 200 student organizations, Creighton has something for everyone. Student organizations include service organizations, Fraternities/Sororities, club sports, honor societies, and much more.

Student organizations at Creighton University are held to the same standards as individual students. These standards are outlined in our Student Handbook under “Student Discipline”.

Hazing

Hazing

The University strictly prohibits hazing - in any form, at any time - including hazing in connection with training, indoctrination, qualification for membership, functions or activities, or initiations conducted or sponsored by any student organization, athletic team, or group of students. Hazing includes any action taken or situation created, whether on or off campus, intended to produce or which may foreseeably produce unusual or unnecessary mental or physical discomfort or pain, embarrassment, harassment, ridicule or risk of physical, mental or emotional harm or injury.
Hazing also includes any action or situation which is intended to be or which may foreseeably be morally, physically, emotionally or mentally degrading to any individual, or which unnecessarily exposes any individual to any risk of physical, mental or emotional harm, injury or distress beyond the risks encountered in ordinary daily life, or which is intended to intimidate or has the effect of intimidating any individual to unwillingly or reluctantly engage in any activity, or which unreasonably interferes with scholastic activities or pursuits of any individual.

As examples, hazing includes, but is not limited to, any conduct or method of initiation into or participation in any student organization, athletic team, or other student group which willfully or recklessly endangers the physical or mental health of any student or other person, including, but again not limited to: whipping, beating, or branding; forced, coerced or required calisthenics or physically exerting activities; exposure to weather or the elements; forced, coerced or required consumption of any food, liquor, beverage, drug or other substance; any brutal or cruel treatment; and any activity which subjects any student or other person to extreme mental stress, including any extended deprivation of sleep or rest or extended isolation.

The University fully reserves to University officials the authority to interpret this policy, and to apply the policy as so interpreted, to the actions of University students and organizations, as University officials in their discretion deem appropriate under the circumstances.

Serious disciplinary action will be imposed by the University upon any student or student organization, athletic team, or group of students found in violation of this policy, up to and including revocation of the charter of, and/or withdrawal of University privileges from, a student organization, athletic team or student group and suspension or dismissal from the University of individual students determined to have violated this policy.
