Chapter Notification

The Director of Sorority & Fraternity Life or Vice President for Judicial from the respective governing council will notify the accused chapter via the chapter president and apprise the chapter of the charges. 



The Director of Sorority & Fraternity Life  in his or her sole discretion will either schedule an informal resolution meeting or send the matter to the Greek Judicial Board.  In the event that a serious violation of one or more of the Greek policies has occurred, where the misconduct may result in removal of the chapter’s recognition at Cornell University, the Director of Sorority & Fraternity Life reserves the right to refer the matter directly to the Vice President for Student and Campus Life or his/her designee(s).

If a case is referred to the Greek Judicial Board, the Vice President for Judicial from the respective governing council will arrange a time and place for the hearing.  Notice of a Greek Judicial Board hearing should normally be given in writing or by e-mail to all parties involved at least 72 hours prior to the hearing.  The notice to the President of the chapter charged with misconduct should include a brief, but clear, description of the alleged offense and the time and location of the hearing.
