- Drug & Alcohol Policy
The presence and consumption of alcohol and/or illegal substances is strictly prohibited during any sport club activity unless approved by the Director of UC Berkeley Recreation & Wellbeing and UCPD. Sport club activity includes games, practices, travel and any activity before, during and after sport club activity, and any related activity reasonably perceived to be a sport club activity. Violation of this policy could result in probation, suspension, and/or expulsion of the individual and/or club from the Sport Club Program.
The Code of Student Conduct prohibits hazing or any method of pre-initiation or initiation into an organization. No individual subject to the jurisdiction of the University shall perform an act, or subject themselves to such acts, that cause physical, psychological or social harm to any other person within the University. The Sport Club Program recognizes the propriety and necessity of student initiations and similar activities that are designed to instill group spirit and loyalty. However, these are only appropriate when the activity is experienced for the benefit of new members, and not at their expense. Punishment for violations of the hazing code may include suspension or dismissal from the University.
- Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Policy
- Student Code of Conduct
Students, by enrolling in the University, assume an obligation to conduct themselves and their organizations in a manner compatible with the University's function as an educational institution. Individuals must always conduct themselves in a manner that does not detract from the reputation of the University. This includes behavior in game situations as well as contact with other teams and event staff. When involved in off-campus events or when traveling, be aware that you are still representing the University.
All students are subject to the policies outlined in the UC Berkeley Student Code of Conduct.
