SUNY Oswego’s Anti-Hazing Statement
Student groups, organizations, and athletic teams are an integral component of campus life. At all times participants in University programs and activities are expected to act in accordance with the Code of Conduct and treat others with respect. Hazing can happen in any organization and is not limited to fraternities and sororities. In all forms, hazing is abusive, degrading, psychologically damaging, often life-threatening, and has no place within the SUNY Oswego community. The University takes every report of hazing seriously and will investigate all complaints thoroughly and vigorously to ensure all students are treated with fairness and dignity. Those found responsible for committing, soliciting, encouraging, directing, aiding, or recklessly permitting hazing to occur will be subject to disciplinary action and could face either suspension or expulsion.
