Cleveland State University is committed to student safety, support, and success and is dedicated to preventing violence in all its forms. No student should be subject to harmful, inappropriate, or coerced behavior to participate or feel they belong to any group at CSU. Hazing is not only against school policy, but also Ohio state law. Cleveland State University prohibits hazing as defined in it’s Anti-Hazing policy and will not tolerate a campus culture which allows hazing to occur.
