Unrecognized Organizations

The University of West Florida is committed to providing transparency regarding known unrecognized organizations.


Active Unrecognized Organizations

Active unrecognized organizations are groups that are not currently recognized by the University of West Florida but continue to operate contrary to UWF and/or Inter/National headquarters sanctions or requirements. These organizations can not participate in programs hosted by Student Involvement, Fraternity and Sorority Life, and other University departments, participate in UWF Greek council programs, co-sponsor or collaborate with recognized fraternities or sororities, reserve space on campus as a student organization, or utilize the University’s name or branding. 

Because these groups are not advised by the University, they do not complete or participate in the risk management procedures and operational policies required of registered UWF fraternities and sororities. Most of the FSL Procedures, including those related to new member activities and events with alcohol, are designed with students’ safety and well-being in mind. Others, such as the Academic Procedures, seek to foster members’ collegiate success. Students considering involvement with active unrecognized organizations either as members or participants in activities sponsored by these organizations should consider the risks and implications of doing so. 

Kappa Sigma (fraternity) was suspended from the University of West Florida through May 1, 2024, for violations regarding alcohol. The violations that led to the suspension occurred while the chapter was on probation for prior violations. The organization has continued to operate without affiliation with the University.

A complete list of chapter statuses and recent conduct violations or sanctions, as well as chapter highlights and academic performance, can be found on the Chapter Performance Dashboard

For questions or concerns regarding active unrecognized organizations, please contact the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
