Registered Student Organization Handbook

Hazing Policy

Grand Valley State University is an institution of advance academic study.  The Student Code states, in Section 221.00:

Hazing: The University prohibits any student, acting alone or with others, to conspire to engage in hazing or to participate in hazing. Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created, whether on or off campus, for the purpose of initiation or affiliation with any organization or team which jeopardizes the physical and/or mental well being of an individual, or is, presumably, an illegal activity.

Freedom from humiliation and danger of hazing is guaranteed to every student on this campus.  This policy includes individuals as well as whole organizations.  Any violation of this policy should be reported immediately to Aaron Haight, Assistant Director of Student Life, in which the situation will be referred to the appropriate judicial body and appropriate action will be taken.
