Hazing is prohibited. Any solicitation to engage in hazing is prohibited. Aiding and abetting another person who is engaged in hazing is prohibited.
All students, faculty, and staff must take reasonable measures within the scope of their individual authority to prevent violations of this policy. It is not a defense to a violation of this policy that the hazing victim consented to or acquiesced in the hazing activity.
Violations of this policy or interference in an investigation under this policy by students or student organizations are subject to sanctions under the Student Code of Conduct. Any university employee who knowingly permitted, authorized, or condoned hazing activity is subject to disciplinary action by the university.
Report violations of this policy by students or student organizations to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
Violations of this policy by faculty or staff are subject to discipline in accordance with Arizona Board of Regents’ and university policies and procedures governing employee misconduct. Report violations by faculty or staff in writing to the provost for investigation.
If the university receives a report or complaint of hazing involving physical injury, threats of physical injury, intimidation, harassment, or property damage, or other conduct that appears to violate Arizona law, the university will report such conduct to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
