Hazing is victimization - an act of power and control over others. Hazing is premeditated and NOT accidental. It is abusive, degrading, often life threatening, and it is a fundamental violation of human dignity. Hazing can be defined as any action or activity which does not contribute to the positive development of a person; which inflicts or intends to cause physical or mental harm or anxieties; which may demean, degrade or disgrace any person regardless of location, intent or consent of participants. Hazing can also be defined as any action or situation, which intentionally endangers a student seeking admission into or affiliation with any student organization.
