Hazing is 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.
As a part of your hazing prevention journey, we encourage you to scroll down and Take the Pledge! In doing so, you make a commitment to raise awareness of hazing activities in your environment, take notice when a fellow or sister student is experiencing hazing, and don’t be afraid to say something! When we work as a team and empower each other, we truly do become #STRONGERTOGETHER!
Complete the form to take the Hazing Prevention Pledge:
I PLEDGE: to prevent hazing before it occurs, stop hazing when I see it happening, report it when I know it has transpired, and help empower others to do the same in their organizations, schools and communities.
I JOIN OTHERS TO:
- Recognize the harm that hazing can cause both physically and psychologically;
- Condemn the act of hazing on all levels;
- Admonish those who haze and those who enable hazing through their silence, and;
- Be an advocate for the prevention of hazing
Your email address is not required to take the pledge and Hazing Prevention Network will not share or post that information to others. If you provide it, HPN may occasionally email you our newsletter, volunteer opportunities and other items of interest. You may always opt out of our communications.
