The term hazing is defined as “any conduct or method of initiation which willfully or recklessly endangers the physical or mental health of any student or other person.” The law applies to officially recognized and to non-recognized groups and to activities conducted both on and off campus. The HLS Administrative Board will consider any violation of this law in the normal course of its oversight. Any student who participates in, supports or condones the practice of hazing is potentially subject to an Administrative Board investigation. Disciplinary action may include the reporting of confirmed incidents of hazing to local law enforcement officials. Under Massachusetts law, hazing is a crime punishable by fine and/or imprisonment. Anyone aware of an incident of hazing within a student organization should contact the Dean of Students Office at 617-495-1880. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
