5.1.13 Hazing and Pre-Initiation Activities


All forms of hazing on the part of any individual, group of individuals, or organization are subject to civil and University disciplinary action.

No initiation or other activity shall be undertaken which endangers the health or safety of an individual, or demands an individual to engage in conduct of an unbecoming or humiliating nature, or in any way detracts from an individual's academic pursuits.

For purposes of this policy and University disciplinary action, Illinois State University defines hazing to include any action taken or situation created, wherever it occurs, which induces mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such actions include paddling, creation of excessive fatigue, physical or psychological shock, wearing apparel which is conspicuous and not in good taste, public stunts or buffoonery, morally degrading or humiliating games or events, work sessions which interfere with scholastic requirements, and any other activity which is inconsistent with regulations or policies of Illinois State University or the laws of the State of Illinois.
