In the Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life, we spend significant time educating students on hazing issues which are holding our Greek community from reaching its full potential. There are several facts to be aware of when thinking about hazing. First, Washington has a no-tolerance hazing law that requires an organization to lose recognition from the University if they are found responsible for hazing or the University is in violation of state law. Second, approximately one fraternity or sorority is found responsible for hazing every year at WSU and if organizations who are not currently hazing do not talk about it, it often creeps back in. Third, while hazing may, in the eyes of some, bond or unite a new member class, it often prevents fraternities, sororities, and individual members from reaching their full potential and will divide the chapter.
If you feel you have been hazed or harmed, or if you have seen or have knowledge of a hazing/harmful incident, please complete this form to the best of your ability.
If you are in immediate harm, please call 911 for immediate police support or medical assistance.
