Hazing

Reporting Hazing

Duty to Report

Immediately upon learning of potential hazing, all employees, volunteers, advisors, consultants, and alumni have a duty to report any alleged violation of hazing. Each mandated reporter must report to the university and to law enforcement.

Separate from and in addition to any administrative duty to report hazing, Ohio Revised Code section 2903.0311 states that "[n]o administrator, employee, faculty member, teacher, consultant, alumnus, or volunteer of any organization, . . . who is acting in an official and professional capacity shall recklessly fail to immediately report the knowledge of hazing to a law enforcement agency in the county in which the victim of hazing resides on in which the hazing is occurring or has occurred." 

How to Report Hazing

If there is a dangerous hazing incident occurring on campus, call 937-775-2111 immediately. If off-campus, call 911.

Reports of suspected hazing should be reported to CSSC, in-person, via phone at 937-775-4240, or online.

A person reporting an incident of hazing can seek advice from a staff member of one of the following university offices: Office of Student Involvement and Leadership, Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Campus Recreation, Office of the Dean of Students, Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct, or the WSUPD.

Wright State will review all reports; however, the ability to thoroughly investigate an anonymous report might be limited. Reporting individuals should provide a form of contact that would preserve their anonymity but allow a university official to obtain additional information if needed. 

When reporting an alleged or potential act of hazing, please include as much detail as possible about the incident, including the following information:

  • Date and location of the incident
  • Description of activities
  • The organization(s) involved if known
  • Name and description of students and others involved

For this policy, appropriate university officials to report hazing are as follows:

  • Allegations involving students, organizations, or groups—Office of Student Involvement and Leadership, Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Campus Recreation, Office of the Dean of Students, Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct, or the WSUPD
  • Allegations involving faculty/staff—Human Resources, Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, or WSUPD
