Fraternity/Sorority Accountability Reports

Occasionally, the University is presented with information calling into question a fraternal organization's compliance with University and/or Governing Council policies. Western Illinois University takes any and all alleged violations of Federal, State, and Local Laws as well as University and Governing Council Policy seriously. The Office of Student Engagement, Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities, and the Fraternity/Sorority Community have mechanisms in place for such instances.

In an effort to provide increased transparency to the community, the University publishes the conduct records of student organizations.

The publication includes all incidents that result in primary sanctions of Disciplinary Probation or greater, and the outcome remains published for three academic years after issuance or until the sanction is complete, if the sanction takes longer than three years to complete. 

We add records to the list as conduct outcomes become final post-appeal period, and we remove eligible records within 30 days of the end of each academic semester.

Under each organization's name, the listed information details the date of the violation, sanctions, the section of the Code the organization violated, and the summary.

Unrecognized Organizations

Some organizations once recognized fraternities or sororities Western Illinois University may attempt to continue to operate despite having lost recognition from the University and/or their Inter/National Organization. Any operation of these groups is considered underground activity, is against university policy, and is not sanctioned by the Office of Student Activities. These organizations have had their recognition revoked by the institution or their National Organization for various reasons. These organizations have in almost all cases also had their charter suspended or revoked by their inter/national organization because they were not upholding fraternal values and were engaging in risky behaviors that endangered the members and other students.

Individuals attempting to operate under the disbanded organization’s name, will be subject to disciplinary action through the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. When an organization loses recognition, official notice is given to active members of the organization and the fraternity and sorority community. The University will maintain a relationship with the Inter/National Organization, and should both parties agree, the organization may be reinstated a a later agreed upon date.
