Hazing: What you need to know

Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS) is raising awareness regarding certain policies in the Code of Conduct at Wichita State. For the month of August, we are discussing hazing.

Did you know that Hazing is any act or action which:

  • Has the potential to endanger the mental or physical health or safety of any individual
  • interferes with an individual’s responsibilities
  • Explicitly or implicitly encourages or requires participation in activities that violate the law or University policy

Hazing can occur by anyone in any organization.

More details regarding hazing and other policies in the Student Code of Conduct can be found in Section VI: Prohibited Conduct in the Student Code of Conduct Handbook.

SCCS is here to help ensure that your student experience is safe.  To report any potential conduct issues to our office through the school year, please use the conduct incident response form.  If you want to explore other reporting forms at Wichita state, please visit the WSU Report It website.
