Cleveland State University has a zero tolerance policy for hazing. No student should be subject to harmful, inappropriate, or coerced behavior in order to be a member or participate in Student Organizations at CSU. Hazing is against CSU’s Student Code of Conduct and against Ohio law.
Hazing is defined in the Student Code of Conduct as:
““Hazing” - any conduct, act, method of, or coercion of another to do an act of initiation or admission into any organization, which occurs on or off university premises and which willfully or recklessly, causes or creates a substantial risk of causing physical or mental harm to any student or other person. Examples include, but are not limited to, extended deprivation of sleep or rest; forced consumption of food, liquor, other beverages, or drugs; beating or branding; forced exclusion from social contact; and/or forced conduct, which could result in embarrassment to any person. Any activity or behavior meeting the definition as described in this paragraph shall be considered a forced activity, notwithstanding the willingness of the individual involved to participate in such activity.”
Students AND registered student organizations who violate this policy will be reported to Student conduct and the appropriate authorities. If you wish to report an act of hazing, you can email magnusACTS@csuohio.edu or report anonymously at https://www.csuohio.edu/report-a-concern/report-a-concern. If you have any questions or concerns about hazing please contact the Center for Campus Engagement or visit https://www.csuohio.edu/studentconduct/anti-hazing-violence-prevention-0.
