  • POLICY:

  • The University will impose a minimum disciplinary penalty of suspension for a specified period of time or suspension of rights and privileges, or both, for conduct related to the use, possession, or distribution of drugs that are prohibited by state, federal, or local law. Suspension or expulsion notations become part of your permanent academic transcript.

Penalties include disciplinary probation, payment for damage to property, suspension of rights and privileges, suspension for a specified period of time, expulsion, or such other penalty as deemed appropriate under the circumstances of the incident at hand.


Slide10 l.jpg

Alcohol

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

  • MANAGING THE RISKS:

  • Make sure your organization follows all University and Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) regulations.

  • www.uta.edu/studentgovernace and www.tabc.state.tx.us

  • Provide an alcohol education program for your members.

  • If someone in your organization has had problems with alcohol, know your resources on campus. Contact your UT Arlington Organization Advisor or the UT Arlington Health Center.

Alcohol

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

  • MANAGING THE RISKS:

  • If your organization gathers as a group in an off campus location that serves alcohol provide the following:

  • A sober designated driver or a system of transportation for those that are drinking.

  • Ensure that members do not participate in “drinking games”. The end result of these games is to force people to drink excessively.

  • If you suspect severe alcohol impairment call for help immediately. Remember you cannot “walk off” or “sleep off” alcohol poisoning.

Hazing

  • “The law defines hazing as an intentional, knowing, or reckless act, occurring on or off campus of an educational institution, by one person or acting with others, directed against a student, that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of said student.”

Slide14 l.jpg

Hazing

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

POLICY:

  • UT Arlington has a ZERO TOLERANCE Policy on Hazing. The University neither tolerates excuses nor does it acknowledge different levels of hazing, i.e. “it was just a little hazing”.

  • In an effort to encourage the reporting of hazing incidents, the law grants immunity from civil or criminal liability to any person who reports a specific hazing event and immunizes that person from participation in any judicial proceeding resulting from that report.

  • Criminal penalties for failure to report: a fine of up to $2,000, up to 180 days in jail, or both. Penalties for other hazing offenses vary according to the severity of the injury, and range from $500 to $10,000 in fines and up to two years confinement.


Slide15 l.jpg

Hazing

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

POLICY:

  • Civil penalties for failure to report: an individual can be personally sued and wages garnished if found guilty.

  • Criminal charges and University sanctions may be applied to both the individual and the student organization for hazing offenses.


Slide16 l.jpg

Hazing

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

  • MANAGING THE RISKS:

  • Hazing should not be viewed as a tradition to pass on to new members.

  • If you suspect a task or event is hazing related, report it immediately to The Office of Student Conduct, Greek Life or Student Governance and Organizations.

  • Come up with constructive bonding exercises for your group.

  • Ask yourself if your groups’ actions can be defended in a court of law. If not, then you need to exercise good judgment and discontinue those actions.

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

  • Sexual Assault is any unwanted, non-consensual sexual contact against an individual by another.

Sexual Assault & Harassment

Managing the Risks: Learn. Succeed. Live.

POLICY:

  • UT Arlington is committed to creating and maintaining an educational environment in which all persons who participate in University programs and activities can work together in an atmosphere free of sexual and relationship violence. Sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking offenses, regardless of the motive or the manner in which they are executed, are criminal behaviors and produce an environment counter to the mission and goals of the University.

  • Students can face expulsion from the University in sexual assault and harassment cases. In the State of Texas, sexual assault is considered a felony offense and the consequences, more often then not, can lead to incarceration for anyone found guilty.

  • Persons involved in a Sexual Assault or Sexual Harassment case can face University sanctions as well as criminal or civil penalties.


Slide20 l.jpg

Sexual Assault & Harassment

    • Encourage students to use a “buddy” system where one can alert his/her buddy upon feeling threatened or uncomfortable in a situation.

    • Promote constant awareness of surroundings.
