JudComm Bylaws of the IFC

Article VII


D. The Board’s sanctions can take on the following characteristics:

1. Organizational Warning-an official written warning to the organization that they have violated an IFC or Institute policy/regulation or community standard and that further violations can result in more serious sanctions. Orgaizational warning can be imposed a minimum of 30 days and cannot exceed 6 months from the date a decision is rendered by the Review Board.

2. Organizational Probation-a higher sanction than organizational warning and it can be imposed for a minimum of 6 months and cannot exceed 1 calendar year. In general, this sanction is the highest sanction an organization can receive before they incur a suspension of privileges, including loss of Institute recognition.

3. Organizational Suspension of Privileges-a decision of suspension of privileges includes revoking social events, chapter housing privileges, recruitment (rush) and new memberintake programs (pledges). These privileges will be revoked for a minimum of 1 year and cannot exceed 4 years. The Review Board can invoke this sanction of suspension of privileges if a) there is sufficient relevance and justification to revoke these privileges and b) unless extreme mitigating circumstances demonstrate any one of these privileges should not be revoked. In addition, a decision to revoke Institute recognition revokes all privileges noted above for a minimum of 4 years.

4. Organizational Expulsion-An organization may be expelled from MIT. An expelled organization may not participate in any MIT, IFC or student organization’s sponsored functions. An expelled organization is not eligible for reinstatement as a recognized Fraternity for a minimum of 10 years.
