Ultimately, we all bear responsibility for protecting each other. The Would You? campaign ties together efforts to educate and empower all members of a campus about taking care of each other – including anti-hazing efforts, the medical amnesty policy, safety programs and wellness programming.

  • There is no place for hazing at any institution, and it is prohibited according to student conduct codes as well as most state’s laws.
  • “Hazing” refers to any activities or tasks expected of someone joining a group that intend to humiliate, degrade or harm them, regardless of a person’s willingness to participate. This often occurs to wrongfully make new members think they must endure these activities to gain official membership into a group.
  • Hazing can happen in any group setting, such as sports teams, fraternity and sorority organizations, bands, clubs and societies. These activities may cause physical, mental or emotional abuse – or even death.
  • Hazing includes activities such as eating gross stuff, sleep deprivation, acts of servitude (clean my room/wash my socks), isolation from others, strange acts of exertion and binge drinking.
  • Let others know that you choose not to participate; resist “proving” yourself.
  • Encourage others not to participate.
  • If you or someone else is in immediate danger, call 911 or your campus police.
  • If it’s not an immediate danger, contact your student conduct office.
  • If you or someone you know needs counseling to deal with the effects of hazing, contact your campus counseling service.
  • Don’t wait – time is vital in a possible overdose, and minutes matter.
