In compliance with the Tucker Hipps Transparency Act below is a list of all violations of Francis Marion’s Honor Code by fraternities and sororities registered as student organizations at the university. The act requires a report of actual findings of violations for offenses after December 31, 2012 involving: alcohol, drugs, sexual assault, physical assault, and hazing. The report must also contain: name of the organization, date on which the event occurred or dates on which the citation was issued, date the investigation was initiated, general incident description, charges, findings, sanctions, and date matter resolved.
The initial investigation into all incidents listed below was to determine if a violation of the Hazing policy had occurred. However, upon further investigation it was determined that in some cases there were no violations of the hazing policy but other policy violations were evident. Finally, in some cases an organization may not have been charged with any violations of university policy, but held responsible for the creation of discord within the campus climate.
