At the University of Oklahoma, hazing is strictly prohibited from fraternal organizations and any registered student organization. Hazing is defined as any intentional or unintentional action or situation – with or without consent- that endangers a student, creates risk of injury, mental or physical discomfort, harassment, embarrassment, and/or ridicule – whether on or off campus – for the purpose of initiation into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in any student organization or team. Hazing is not only in direct violation with student conduct policy, but also in violation with the Oklahoma Statutes in Section 1190 of Title 21.
A hazing incident may be reported to Student Conduct by anyone: a person who was directly affected by the activity, a person who was involved in the incident; faculty, staff, parents, friends, or community members; or anyone who is generally concerned about a student or group. If you have witnessed or have knowledge of a possible hazing incident, report the incident immediately to Student Conduct and/or the police.
