Anti-Hazing Hotline: http://raternallaw.com/contact/anti-hazing-hotline/

The Greek Anti-Hazing Hotline, established in 2007 by a consortium of national fraternities and sororities, is currently sponsored by 38 national and international Greek organizations.

The Hotline provides an anonymous telephone line for anyone to report a suspected or recent hazing incident to one number 1-888-NOT-HAZE (1-888-668-4293) that accepts calls 24 hours a day. The Hotline connects to a dedicated voice mailbox at Manley Burke, LPA. The calls are automatically saved as audio files that are then transmitted by e-mail to the headquarters of the fraternity or sorority named in the report. This is true whether or not the reports are about one of the sponsors or another organization. In some instances, reports are about athletic teams, bands or clubs. When those calls are received, the institution where the organization is located is contacted.

We are lucky here at Shepherd University because all 7 of our social Greek chapters’ Headquarters are sponsors of the National Anti-Hazing Hotline. These organizations are committed to a risk and hazing free atmosphere for their new members.
