Campus Commitment to Hazing Prevention: Action Guide©™

The Campus Commitment to Hazing Prevention: Action Guide©™  provides practical resources focused on one of the eight Hazing Prevention Framework©™ components — commitment.  Use the Action Guide to engage campus leaders and the broader campus community in eliminating campus hazing culture and ultimately, transforming group environments to support healthy belonging and well-being for all students.

“According to our data, hazing prevention is a leadership issue.”

The Framework was developed with findings from a research-to-practice project, the Hazing Prevention Consortium, led by StopHazing and researchers at the University of Maine.
