Policy Provisions

Greek Organization Disciplinary Regulations

Cumberland University respects that fraternities and sororities are self-governing, legal entities responsible and liable for their own actions and the University seeks to enable and encourage Greek organizations rather than dominate or control them. However as with all student organizations, the University is responsible for the insuring the safety of all students and if self-regulation does not function to produce a quality result with regard to University policies and in instances of blatant disregard for University policy, the following sanctions may be placed upon individuals (if they are personally found liable) or the fraternity/sorority as a whole.


Such actions can be, but are not limited to the following:

· Suspension of Recruitment

· Recommendation to international or national office for officers’ removal from office

· Notification of the international or national office of violation(s)

· Planning/coordinating educational workshop or seminar for all students

· Recommend expulsion from the fraternity/sorority

· Social Probation

· Mandatory Campus or Community service

· Monetary Fines

· Restitution to the University or the person to whom the offense was directed

· Recommendation to the international or national office for the revocation of the Chapter’s charter at Cumberland University


After an offense has occurred and has been reported to the Greek Advisor, the president of the offending chapter will be called into a meeting with the Director of Greek Affairs in an attempt to resolve the situation. If such mediation does not prove effective, the Director of Greek Affairs will make a recommendation to the Assistant VP and Dean of Students for advisement of other steps that can be taken as punishment of chapters/individuals.  Complaints involving hazing do not require mediation.
