Policies:

Hazing, or conspiracy to haze, is defined as any method of initiation or pre-initiation into a student organization or student body, whether or not the organization or body is officially recognized by an educational institution, which is likely to cause serious bodily injury to any former, current, or prospective student of any school, community college, college, university or other educational institution in this state (Penal Code 245.6), and in addition, any act likely to cause physical harm, personal degradation or disgrace resulting in physical or mental harm, to any former, current, or prospective student of any school, community college, college, university or other educational institution. The term “hazing” does not include customary athletic events or school-sanctioned events. Neither the express or implied consent of a victim of hazing, nor the lack of active participation in a particular hazing incident is a defense.  Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of hazing is not a neutral act, and is also a violation of this section.

[California Code of Regulations, Title 5. Education, 41301. Standards for Student Conduct Section B-8]

 

In collaboration with chapter and council leadership, Sonoma State University has established an Expansion and Recognition process for students and organizations wishing to colonize.  At this time, Sonoma State University has determined that the campus is not currently open for expansion.  If there is interest, please contact Leo Serrato, Campus Life Advisor, Fraternity and Sorority Life to schedule a meeting to review the procedure.
