Organization Self-Reporting

Student organization leaders also can self-report organization or member behavior that may be considered violations of TTU policy. When an organization is able to quickly identify a concern, address it, and report it, it is less likely that the organization would be held responsible for behavior that may be a policy violation. The self-report allows the University, in conjunction with the student organization to collect information, begin individual student conduct processes, and ensure that behavior has ceased and does not reoccur. When incidents are unreported by organizations and instead come to the attention of the university via a complainant or third party, the options for resolution are more limited. Self-reporting allows the university to work collaboratively with the organization to address the situation and can allow for lower-levels of sanctioning for misconduct.

Sometimes organization leaders may also become aware that organization or member activities may result in violations of policy but have not occurred yet. In these cases, the organization leadership is encouraged to work directly with Campus Life staff to intervene and address the concern. This type of pre-report has the highest likelihood of lowering the risk of potential conduct violations and sanctions for the organization.

Organization leaders may self-report misconduct or potential misconduct by utilizing the online form below or contacting the appropriate student organization or fraternity/sorority life staff member in the Center for Campus Life.

What happens after a self-report?

Following self-reports, Campus Life staff will contact the organization leadership to review the behavior that occurred and what corrective action was taken. Assuming that the action taken by the organization addressed the misbehavior, prevented its reoccurrence, and remedied any impact on members, then the self-report would be documented in the organization file without additional conduct procedures. Should additional information become available or other behaviors occur to indicate that the corrective action or the self-report was not an effective resolution to the behavior, then formal conduct procedures may occur.
