Anti-Hazing Workshop

Anti-Hazing Workshop


All seats in the room were packed from members of each house at our annual risk management workshop. Greeks from the National Pan-Hellenic Council, Inc. at the University of Washington were also in attendance for this collaborative joint seminar — at University of Washington.

Hazing is a plague in our society. Incidents are on the rise—particularly among younger and younger kids committing increasingly more violent acts. Take a look at some statistics:
  • 1.5 million high school students are hazed each year; 47% of students came to college already having experienced hazing.
  • 55% of college students involved in clubs, teams and organizations experience hazing.
  • Alcohol consumption, humiliation, isolation, sleep-deprivation, and sexual acts are hazing practices common across all types of student groups.
  • 40% of athletes who reported being involved in hazing behaviors report that a coach or advisor was aware of the activity; 22% report that the coach was involved.
  • 2 in 5 students say they are aware of hazing taking place on their campus. More than 1 in 5 report that they witnessed hazing personally.
