Hazing Policy

Report a Hazing Incident

Hazing in any form is prohibited. The university will investigate and respond to all reports of hazing as defined in this policy.

Wright State University recognizes that membership in organizations can significantly enhance the learning and experiences of university students.  In addition, the University is committed to cultivating a community that fosters respect for the dignity and rights of all its members.  There is no place for hazing in our community, which includes abusive behavior, harassment, or assault.  Group loyalty and unity are built on trust and mutual respect.  Hazing is an abuse of power and relationships and puts individuals at risk; therefore, Wright State University will not tolerate hazing in any form by any members of the University community.  This policy applies to all student organizations, including but not limited to fraternities, sororities, military organizations, etc.

Hazing in any form is prohibited. The University will investigate and respond to all reports of hazing as defined in this policy. Retaliating in any manner against an individual who reports hazing or who participates in an investigation of a hazing report is strictly prohibited and will be investigated by the Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct. All members of the University community shall cooperate in an investigation of hazing.

This policy applies to all members of the University community. Students, administrators, staff, faculty, consultants, alumni, student organizations (including, but not limited to, fraternities, sororities, military organizations, etc.), and volunteers of any organization are members of the University community for purposes of this policy.  This policy applies to hazing that takes place between two or more people affiliated with the University, regardless of whether the behavior occurs on or off university property. This policy applies regardless of a person's willingness to participate.

All student organizations registered with Wright State University must sign and submit to the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership the "Anti-Hazing Agreement" each academic year and immediately following any change in the organization's presidency. The acceptance of this agreement will certify all officers and members have been informed of and will comply with the Wright State Anti-Hazing Policy and Ohio law. Any organization not submitting this form with the proper signatures by the required date will automatically incur a loss of university affiliation and services. The additional responsibility of registered student organization leaders is to review the Wright State Anti-Hazing Policy with all prospective members. All questions regarding policy and its interpretation should be directed to the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership, 019 Student Union.
