Stanford Group Accountability Process (SGAP)
In Winter quarter 2022, the Stanford Group Accountability Process (SGAP) replaced the Organization Conduct Board (OCB) as the accountability process for student groups. Facilitated by the Office of Community Standards (OCS), SGAP addresses alleged violations of university policies by student groups, which includes all voluntary student organizations, Row Houses, sports teams (both club and varsity), fraternities, and sororities (“Groups”)*.
*This policy currently only applies to registered student organizations (voluntary student organizations, club sports teams, fraternities, and sororities). It will apply to Row Houses and varsity sports teams beginning Fall quarter 22-23.
The goals of SGAP are to identify problematic conduct and behavioral issues within a Group and to provide a combination of educational and disciplinary sanctions to help the Group self-correct their behavior.
