The Stanford marching band will be banned from performing at away games for the 2015-16 season.

The school announced the decision Friday after an investigation into the band's activities from 2012-15 determined it violated university policies regarding alcohol, controlled substances, hazing and sexual harassment.

In addition to the travel ban, the band also will need to ensure compliance with school policies on alcohol, hazing and sexual harassment.

The band will be permitted to play at home events and at certain non-athletic events.

The band can appeal the penalty. A final decision would be issued by Vice Provost for Student Affairs Greg Boardman.
