The following links provide access to hazing information at other institutions and organizations. Yale is not responsible for these sites, but we believe they provide information that is very interesting, thought-provoking, and useful. We are grateful to these organizations for making this information available.
- from the Final Report of the Committee on Hazing and Initiations, April 21, 2011
Hazing is prohibited by state law in Connecticut. Yale policy, as outlined in the Undergraduate Regulations, goes beyond these state laws. In its definition of hazing, Yale's policy prohibits any actions that "...intimidate, denigrate, or humiliate third parties..." who witness hazing activities. Yale's policy makes clear that both individuals (officers and members) and organizations with any level of involvement in these behaviors "will be held responsible for hazing violations."
This web site is designed to provide easy access for students to hazing information and resources. We expect this site will expand with time, and we welcome recommendations for additions and improvements. We also encourage members of the Yale community to bring questions or concerns about hazing to our attention.
