Greek Life and Organizational Conduct

In order for our students to be fully informed about their choices when joining a fraternity or sorority, USC Upstate provides a report on conduct violations dating back to 2011. This information can help students to evaluate the safety and integrity of the organizations they are considering joining. 

USC Upstate cares about the safety and well being of its students! Help us keep our campus safe by being a part of the Spartans Care initiative  where students support, respect and take responsibility for one another. Make a plan to be an active bystander in an unsafe situation and know what you can do to stop harmful behavior and get help for yourself and your peers. You may also report an incident anonymously via the R U OK form

In accordance with South Carolina's Tucker Hipps Transparency Act, USC Upstate reports findings of violations involving alcohol, drugs, sexual assault, physical assault and hazing by fraternity and sorority organizations formally affiliated with the University. Reports include the organizations name, incident date, report, charge, investigation and resolution. Reports also include a general incident description and subsequent charges, findings and sanctions placed on the organization.
