New members will receive training on hazing definitions, awareness and prevention during their first month in the respective fraternity or sorority. The inaugural Hazing Prevention Week will take place October 16th - 20th.
This full week of events hosted by our 3 councils and IFC chapters, will focus on awareness, prevention and strategy for our members to utilize in keeping our community members safe. This week will include awareness campaigns, victims vigil, a hazing prevention film screening, as well as a training for chapter presidents and new member educators. We will also be hosting a professional speaker, who will teach our community about hazing prevention efforts. Finally, we will end the week with a round table discussion about how our community can work together to prevent hazing. We will continue these conversations each month at council meetings and throughout the year, to ensure we are proactive in all safe practices.
