Concerns may include: questions about hazing and what constitutes hazing, thinking you may be hazed or treated unfairly by a group with which you are involved, wondering whether what is expected of you is appropriate or inappropriate.
Don't be a bystander when it comes to hazing. If a matter needs to be addressed immediately, don't hesitate to contact the police by dialing 911. The term “hazing” is defined as any action taken, or situation created, involving prospective or new members of a group, or as a condition of continued membership in a group (fraternity, sorority, team, club or other association or organization), which would be perceived by a reasonable person as likely to produce mental or physical harm, extreme or unusual stress, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule.
