Hazing Prevention Education and Resources

Our goal is to empower all in our community to recognize hazing in its various forms, to know what to do when they see hazing activity or experience it directly, and to feel confident in taking action.  One of the ways we hope to empower our community to do this is through awareness, education, and access to resources.  On this page, you will find a variety of resources that will help you assist in helping all members of our community be involved in campus life in a positive and meaningful way. 

A Home Without Hazing

Training for Hazing Prevention at W&M

A Home Without Hazing training will be offered at W&M in order to support on-going hazing prevention efforts.  We believe that no one should ever be demeaned or exposed to harm in their efforts to be part of campus life.  In-person participation in A Home Without Hazing training will be required for all student organizations with new members.  A Home Without Hazing trainings will consist of four separate required trainings (prospective members, new members, active members, and advisors). 

Training dates and registration information can be found at the Hazing Prevention at W&M TribeLink page.
