Every Greek letter organization prohibits hazing and every national chapter has information on their website regarding hazing. Every professional organization that supports or advocates for fraternities and sororities prohibits hazing. Yet, hazing persists as a challenge for many Greek letter organizations.
Members of the Greek community are expected to learn, value, and integrate the activities and rituals that are unique to their organizations into their lives. As a new member or initiated member, you may feel both personal and social pressure to earn or prove your membership, which may result in participating in or agreeing to perform actions that would be considered hazing.
If you have questions or need resources related to your involvement as a member of the Greek community, contact the Greek Life staff in the Student Involvement & Leadership Center in 400 Kansas Union, 785-864-4861. You can also contact the Office of the Vice Provost for Student Affairs at 785-864-4060.
