Hazing Education at the University of Virginia

IF THIS IS AN EMERGENCY OR SOMEONE IS IN DANGER, CALL 911.   Report an Incident

For Students

Students at the University can experience and view hazing from a variety of perspectives:

As a student leader, your club or organization may be evaluating practices concerning membership. As part of this evaluation, student leaders should consider alternatives to hazing. The staff in the Office of the Dean of StudentsStudent Engagement, and Fraternity & Sorority Life are available to assist and support student leaders as they assess and evaluate membership practices. 

As someone who may have experienced or witnessed hazing, there is a cross-function team of University stakeholders who are working to advance a hazing prevention and education framework. Report hazing here.

As a friend, roommate, or resident assistant, you may have a fellow student approach you to discuss a hazing related event.  In this instance, it’s important to recognize the signs of hazing and to identify ways to help.   In these conversations, friends can provide a supportive network while also reinforcing that hazing has no place in the University experience.

As a University student, you may be interested and eager to address hazing.  To learn how you can get invovled, please email the Robert Tipton Jr. Hazing Prevention Coordinator.
