Hazing Policy

Stetson University believes that involvement in student organizations and athletic teams greatly enhances the development of college students. An organization's member educational program, if developed and conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect with social and moral responsibility, can contribute much to the student's total education. In keeping with this principle, and in view of the possibility of abuses by student organizations at Stetson and university campuses throughout the country, Stetson University has defined hazing as "any action taken or situation created intentionally, on or off the university campus, by students or off-campus individuals to produce physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule." Any student or student organization that is found in violation of this policy will be subject to a review of its continued status within the university by the senior vice president and chief operating officer at which time appropriate action of the most serious kind will be taken.
