3344-83-06 Student organizational behavior.

(A) Students are encouraged to organize and join associations and organizations to promote their common interests. Student organization activities, events or programs held off university premises are the responsibility of the sponsoring student organization and not the university. However, it is expected that members of organizations individually and collectively will act consistently with the provisions of the code, the organization's constitution, university rules and regulations, and applicable laws. The presiding officer of an organization is responsible for informing members that the organization and its members are governed by the terms and conditions of the code and university rules and regulations.

(1) If the actions set forth in paragraph (A)(2) of this rule occur on university premises, the student organization can be subject to the university judicial system set forth in rules 3344-83-10 to 3344-83-12 of the Administrative Code and may incur one or more of the sanctions described in rule 3344-83-07 of the Administrative Code. For actions on or off university premises, a university official may bring charges of failure to follow university policies to the student life committee of faculty senate which may suspend or revoke recognition or registration of a student organization and/or dictate conditions by which a student organization may maintain or re-establish recognition or registration in accordance with the committee's procedures set forth in the student handbook.

(2) An organization may be held responsible, as set forth in paragraph (A)(1) of this rule, for violations under any of the following conditions:

(a) When the act is in violation of a rule in Chapter 3344-83 of the Administrative Code, the organization's constitution, or applicable university rules and regulations and is committed by one or more officers or members of an organization and is supported by any of the following of the organization:

(i) Authorized,

(ii) Requested,

(iii) Encouraged, or

(vi) Tolerated.
