Hazing Prevention

Hazing of any type is strictly prohibited at any time, including before intake activities begin, during the intake process, or after new member are initiated. Edward Waters University strictly prohibits and will not tolerate traditions, customs and practices that involve hazing of any kind, that interfere with the academic and personal development of students, that are antisocial, or that compromise students’ safety and well-being. The College will discipline clubs and organizations, including Greek-letter organizations, that engage in underground and clandestine activities and groups that are developed for the purpose of initiation into a club or organization. Students who engage in such activities as well as any form of hazing are subject to suspension from the University, regardless of classification, status or length of time at the University. Suspension in these and all other matters, takes effect immediately. Hazing is a ZERO TOLERANCE violation of the student code of conduct and students are subject to disciplinary action for engaging in hazing as defined by State of Florida law.

The Office of Student Activities and Leadership, the Vice President of Student Success and Engagement, Office of Student Conduct and Integrity and Campus Security reserve jurisdiction over membership intake activities and will monitor the organization and individuals involved in all processes.
