The University of Mississippi prohibits hazing in any form. According to the educational website StopHazing.org, hazing “refers to any activity expected of someone joining a group (or to maintain full status in the group) that humiliates, degrades, or risks emotional and/or physical harm, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate.”
Violations of the university’s hazing policy may result in disciplinary action against any involved students and organizations. In addition to the university’s judicial system, students and organizations who participate in or condone hazing may subject themselves to criminal prosecution and/or civil liability.
Please find this link to anonymously report hazing incidents. Remember, without knowledge of the problem, there is little we can do to address any problematic behavior. We will take every effort to protect those who come forward to report hazing.
