It is the responsibility of the chapter officers to educate their members regarding anti-hazing and the hazing policies and laws. Hazing is not only against inter/national organizations’ and University policies, but is a violation of Connecticut state law. Connecticut Hazing Law (Sec. 53-23a. Hazing) For purposes of this section: 1. "Hazing" means any action which recklessly or intentionally endangers the health or safety of a person for the purpose of initiation, admission into or affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in a student organization. The term shall include, but not be limited to: Requiring indecent exposure of the body Requiring any activity that would subject the person to extreme mental stress, such as sleep deprivation or extended isolation from social contact; Confinement of the person to unreasonably small, unventilated, unsanitary or unlighted areas; Any assault upon the person; or Requiring the ingestion of any substance or any other physical activity which could adversely affect the health or safety of the individual. The term shall not include an action sponsored by an institution of higher education which requires any athletic practice, conditioning, or competition or curricular activity. 2. "Student organization" means a fraternity, sorority or any other organization organized or operating at an institution of higher education. No student organization or member of a student organization shall engage in hazing any member or person pledged to be a member of the organization. The implied or express consent of the victim shall not be a defense in any action brought under this section. A student organization which violates subsection (b) of this section (1) shall be subject to a fine of not more than one thousand five hundred dollars and (2) shall forfeit for a period of not less than one year all of the rights and privileges of being an organization organized or operating at an institution of higher education. A member of a student organization who violates subsection (b) of this section shall be subject to a fine of not more than one thousand dollars. This section shall not in any manner limit or exclude prosecution or punishment for any crime or any civil remedy. (P.A. 88-328, S. 1-5.) University of Connecticut Hazing Statement “Hazing, defined as an act which endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student, or which destroys or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in a group or organization. The express or implied consent of the victim will not be a defense. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of hazing are not neutral acts; they are violations of this rule.” - Responsibilities of Community Life: The Student Code (Part III.B.6.) Sanctions at the University of Connecticut: “In cases of individual violators, appropriate student conduct action may be imposed as outlined in Responsibilities of Community Life: The Student Code. In cases where organizations have been involved in such conduct, loss of privileges, suspension of registration, or removal of recognition may be imposed. The Student Code is the University’s process for dealing with complaints within the community. Individuals and/or organizations may also be subject to the actions of local, state, or federal police agencies.” We certify that: - We have read and understand the Connecticut State Hazing Law. - We have read and understand the University Hazing Statement. - We have read and understand our inter/national hazing policy. - We have and will continue to educate our chapter members on these laws and policies. - All new/intake group members will receive a copy of New Member Rights & Responsibilities. - All activities that our new/intake group members participate in comply fully with these laws and policies. - Our chapter new member/intake program will run no longer than 8 weeks and activities will end during or before the 12th week of the semester. - All new/intake group members who complete the approved process will be fully initiated using ONLY the inter/national ceremony. - We understand that failure of our organization to uphold this policy, in whole or in part, will result in the referral of the organization and individuals involved to the student organization conduct process, and/or the appropriate state and local authorities.

Off-campus new member education activities are considered the exception rather than the rule and therefore, very few activities will be approved. Please attach a letter from a national/regional representative that indicates the need for such activity to take place off-campus. The number of off-campus activities is determined by Expectations of Excellence privilege level: A ( up to 3 activities), B (up to 2 activities), C (1 activity), and F (no off-campus activities allowed).
