Hazing Prevention Resources
Colorado State University is host to numerous student resources connected to hazing prevention. Compiled below are resources for chapters and individuals on a wide variety of hazing prevention related topics. This includes information about how chapters might identify, report, and prevent hazing.
Connections to CLIMB:
- As chapters seek to engage in meaning making and clarifying purpose as part of the new member period, they will do so in a way that supports the safe growth and development of their members.
- As chapters build connections among members, they work to support one another in meeting harm reduction expectations and ensuring members are engaging in new member education processes that respect each member’s personhood.
For more information about any of the resources below, contact the professional staff member responsible for hazing prevention. To view the staff member responsible for this content area click here.
The Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life encourages community members to think critically about the activities they ask their members to participate and review the following questions to determine whether or not the activity could be defined as hazing:
- Will active/current members of the group refuse to do what they are asking the new members to do?
- Is alcohol involved?
- Does the activity risk emotional or physical abuse?
- Is there risk of injury or a question of safety?
- Would you feel uncomfortable describing the activity to your parents, to a professor, or to University faculty?
- Would you feel uncomfortable with the activity being photographed for the school newspaper or filmed by the local TV news crew?
If the answer to ANY of these questions is “yes,” the activity is most likely hazing.
Clicking the link below takes you to a secure and anonymous area where you can tell CSU administrators about any activity that may be hazing. If you are willing to receive follow-up questions about your report, you should include contact information in your report. Your personal information will not be released or discussed with organizations being reported for hazing.
