Updated Judicial Policy for Student Orgs

The University Court and the Committee for Organization Conduct Oversight (COCO) of the SSA have made updates and ratified the Judicial Policy as of March 1st, 2022.

If you have any questions, please contact either Chief Justice Tetrick or Director Haugen.

You might be wondering, what exactly does the University Court and COCO do?

Well, they look out for the best interest of student orgs and campus in terms of the student org code of conduct.

COCO is a group of people that investigate a complaint brought forth against an organization.  The University Court holds hearings to determine if the organization is responsible for the actions against them. The University Court also interprets SSA's governing documents and resolves disagreements involving them.
