Student Organizations

Student Conduct holds jurisdiction over student organization conduct matters. The NIU Student Code of Conduct is applicable to student organizations and outlines the rights and responsibilities of a recognized student organization. Additionally, the Student Code of Conduct outlines the procedure which will be undertaken when Student Conduct responds to an alleged conduct violation. In addition to the NIU Student Code of Conduct, student organizations are required to comply with all other applicable NIU policies and procedures.
