Student groups can make a difference in the Oxy community by taking active measures to prevent hazing. Here are some suggestions to consider:

  • Develop a non-hazing policy statement and share it with prospective and new members. Communicate openly and up front that you do not haze.
  • Plan an event to promote National Hazing Awareness Week.
  • Invite campus community members including students, parents, administrators, or faculty members to any public traditions or ceremonies.
  • Be vigilant in monitoring the evolution of your own practices, especially if your organization has engaged in hazing in the past. Maintaining a non-hazing approach requires ongoing attention, especially as membership changes over time.
