Hazing Prevention Policy
Policy is a core component of comprehensive violence prevention, hazing included. To effectively prevent hazing, an evidence-based approach is necessary and that also includes enacting and upholding clear policies that prohibit hazing. Anti-hazing policies should not only prohibit harmful behavior, but also help to shape healthy group behaviors that promote inclusive campus communities to support ethical student leadership, well-being, and belonging.
