Policy on Hazing

CSM believes membership in a collegiate fraternal organization is based on social and moral responsibility. Hazing against any member(s) of a fraternal organization – pledged or initiated member(s) – is counterproductive to these stated goals and is in conflict with the true meaning of fraternal life, university rules and regulations and state law. Therefore, the Colorado School of Mines, is unalterably opposed to and prohibits the act of hazing.

Hazing is any action taken, or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule. Such activities include, but are not limited to, use of alcohol; paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; engaging in public stunts; activities which have a foreseeable potential for personal injury; and any other activities which are not consistent with fraternity law, ritual or policy.

The following shall not constitute a defense against a hazing charge: that participants took part voluntarily, that participants voluntarily assumed the risks and hardships of the activity, or that no injury was suffered.

 

By signing this statement, I acknowledge that I have read and understand the Policy on Hazing and agree to abide by it and any additional regulations governing hazing established by the constitutions of the governing organizations as well as the constitutions of CSM Interfraternity Council and the CSM Panhellenic Council.
