Hazing Policies

Hazing Definition

While many proponents of hazing hail its virtues (building unity, strengthening membership), the simple fact is that hazing is an antiquated view of developing a strong organization. And in the most base form, it is illegal. The University will not tolerate nor condone any form of hazing. Hazing is to be defined as:

“any action taken or any situation created intentionally that causes embarrassment, harassment or ridicule and risks emotional and/or physical harm to members of a group or team, whether new or not, regardless of the person's willingness to participate

If you are concerned that the activity your organization is planning or in which you are participating, contact the Student Involvement & Employment Office to discuss these concerns or report it here.
