Hazing Prevention

Per Delta Chi’s Risk Management Policies, “No chapter, member, associate member, or alumnus shall conduct, participate in, or condone hazing activities. Knowledge of hazing and failure to take timely and appropriate action is condoning hazing. Permission or approval, whether expressed or implied, by a person being hazed is not a defense.”

Hazing is the antithesis of everything that we believe in as an organization and Delta Chi is committed to staying true to its values. Below you can find a list of resources to help combat hazing, educate yourself and others, and report hazing when you see it taking place.

Hazing is defined as:

"Any action taken, or situation created to cause or reasonably cause mental or physical discomfort or harm, intimidation, harassment, or embarrassment for the purpose of gaining or continuing membership of any kind in the Fraternity. Such activities may include but are not limited to the following: forced or implied consumption of alcohol or drugs, confining individuals to a space for any period of time, subjecting individuals to excessively loud environments to disorient or make uncomfortable, calisthenics as a means of punishment, depriving of sleep or displacing someone from their normal sleep schedule or location, forced or implied sexual activity, lineups of any kind for the purpose of questioning/quizzing or demeaning, threats of any kind including withholding initiation into the Fraternity, wearing of similar attire which separates by membership status, personal servitude or running errands of any kind with or without reimbursement, required carrying of certain items, restriction of communication, and any other activities which are not consistent with academic achievement, fraternal law, ritual or policy or the regulations and policies of the educational institution or applicable state law."

Hazing Hotline: The Hazing Hotline provides an anonymous telephone line for anyone to report a suspected or recent hazing incident to one number 1-888-NOT-HAZE (1-888-668-4293) that accepts calls 24 hours a day.

Hazing Prevention Network: The Hazing Prevention Network is a national organization dedicated to empowering people to prevent hazing, by providing education and resources, advocating on hazing prevention, and building partnerships with others.

Anti-Hazing Education: Anti-Hazing Education provides resources and information related to hazing prevention. Please browse through these resources and feel free to share with others. Let’s all work together to put an end to hazing.
