Anti-hazing Policy

The potential for hazing typically arises as part of a student’s introduction to or initiation in a fraternal organization in which there is often a perceived or real power differential between members of the organization and those newly joining it. No fraternal organization, student or alumnus shall conduct nor condone hazing activities. Permission or approval by a person being hazed is not a defense. Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities may include morally degrading or humiliating games and activities, and any other activities which are not consistent with academic achievement, this Statement, the University Bulletin of Campbell University, the Student Handbook of Campbell University, or applicable state law. Such activities and situations include, but are not limited to:

  • Marching in line
  • Wearing apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste, and/or inappropriate for the time of year
  • Forced or extreme physical activity
  • Line-ups
  • Forced periods of silence
  • Forced or involuntary spending
  • Standing for a length of time
  • Personal servitude
  • Activities that would not normally construe hazing but because of time, place, or manner make them inappropriate
  • deprivation or interruption of consecutive sleep hours
  • Expected or forced consumption of food, drink (including alcohol), or other substance
  • Acts of humiliation or degradation (including streaking or wearing degrading or humiliating apparel)
  • Restrictions on eating or bathing
  • Acts that disrupt academic instruction or learning of others
  • Interruption or interference of academic commitments
  • Branding
  • Paddling in any form
  • Compromising sexual situations
  • Bullying
  • Abandonment

Students should also be aware that hazing is a misdemeanor under North Carolina state law. See North Carolina General Statute § 14 35.
