Hazing Prevention

University of North Carolina at Pembroke , the State of North Carolina, Campus Engagement and Leadership, and all councils and chapters in the UNCP fraternal community do not tolerate or encourage any activities that may constitute hazing according to the definitions below. We encourage any member that believes they have been a victim of hazing or witnessed or participated in hazing to report the alleged violation directly to the Office of Student Conduct so that the incident can be investigated immediately and appropriately.

UNC Pembroke Hazing Policy

No chapter, colony, student or alumnus shall conduct or condone hazing activities. Hazing is defined as: “Any action taken or situation created intentionally or unintentionally, with or without consent of the person being hazed, whether on or off campus, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities may include but are not limited to the following: use of alcohol; paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; quests; scavenger hunts; road trips; wearing of apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; and any other activities which are not consistent with academic achievement, fraternal law, ritual or policy, or the regulations and policies of UNC Pembroke, or North Carolina state law.”

North Carolina Hazing Law

It is unlawful for any student in attendance at any university, college, or school in this State to engage in hazing, or to aid or abet any other student in the commission of this offense. For the purposes of this section hazing is defined as follows: “to subject another student to physical injury as part of an initiation, or as a prerequisite to membership, into any organized school group, including any society, athletic team, fraternity or sorority, or other similar group.” The negligence or consent of the plaintiff or any assumption of the risk by the plaintiff is not a defense to an action brought pursuant.
