Chapter Conduct & Judicial

USC & Fraternity & Sorority Leadership Development expects all students and fraternities and sororities to uphold their organization and USC values. As demonstrated in the Trojan Greek Standards & Accreditation, membership in a fraternity or sorority is considered to be a privilege, and with this privilege comes the responsibility to perform in a manner exemplifying the ideals of the Trojan: faithful, scholarly, skillful, courageous, and ambitious.

The USC code of conduct, SCampus, outlines prohibited conduct for students and student organizations.

In an effort to demonstrate the current judicial standings of USC fraternities and sororities, Fraternity & Sorority Leadership Development will post the current statuses of organizations who are no longer recognized by the university and their inter/national organization, including their current status with USC Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards.

Limited Operations

These organizations have limited operations and will work with their inter/national organization and Fraternity & Sorority Leadership Development on a development plan before operations can resume.

Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority (Panhellenic Council): limited operations and activities (cannot host or participate in social, philanthropy, and any other events) due to not meeting expectations of the Panhellenic Council recruitment rules and Trojan Greek Standards & Accreditation for spring 2019.

Interim Action

These organizations are unable to conduct chapter operations until an investigation is complete by Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards.

Loss of Recognition/Unrecognized

These organizations are no longer recognized by USC and their respective inter/national organization due to investigation findings. These organizations cannot conduct any chapter operations, including recruitment/intake, socials, meetings, etc.

Please remember that any student who knowingly chooses to affiliate with an organization or group who has been suspended or disbanded is subject to disciplinary action up to and including suspension and expulsion from the university as outlined in Section G. l .IV of the Student Conduct Code. Also note organizations who do not adhere to university recognition and council expansion processes can jeopardize their eligibility for future recognition opportunities.
