Northeastern University is committed to promoting a safe and healthy environment for all members of the community and to preventing hazing before it occurs.

Participating in student organizations or groups is an important part of your Northeastern University experience. However, no group or individual should be physically or emotionally at risk in order to participate in, or become a member of, an organization or group.

Northeastern University prohibits hazing behaviors within its community, as hazing is a serious and often hidden experience some students face. Our community is dedicated to helping students find resources and support, while holding organizations, groups and individuals responsible/accountable for such dangerous behaviors. Hazing is not only a violation of Northeastern University policies, but is also against the Massachusetts State Law, and does not offer a healthy, safe and welcoming environment for community members. This policy applies to all members of the University faculty, staff and students. It applies to on- and off-campus behavior.
