Hazing Prevention

Each year, Shepherd University Fraternity and Sorority Life hosts Anti-Hazing Week. During this week, each chapter on campus will sponsor an activity to bring attention to the problem of hazing. Anti-Hazing Week is an opportunity to educate the entire campus to not just recognize hazing, but to learn ways they can prevent it from occurring in the first place. All of our organizations are committed to a risk and hazing free atmosphere for their members.

Step up and take the Hazing Prevention Pledge!

Anti-Hazing Hotlineimg7

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.
