About National Hazing Prevention Week
National Hazing Prevention Week is observed on campuses and within organizations each year during the last week of September (or another time that is more convenient). Activities can range from brown bag lunch discussions among faculty to movie or book discussions with students; training for organizational and team leaders, to the signing of anti-hazing pledges.
FAU’s fraternity & sorority community observes this week annually coordinating and participating in a number of the activities described above. Florida Atlantic University has a zero tolerance policy on hazing and that is something our community takes very seriously.
We use this week to help bring attention to this issue; to educate parents, faculty and staff, students, community members, local and campus police and others so they can more easily recognize hazing - and more importantly - have the skills to intervene, when hazing occurs.
The ultimate goal of these efforts, however, is to prevent hazing from happening in the first place. That goal will only be accomplished through strong educational efforts, diligent policy enforcement and comprehensive and on-going efforts on each campus and within all organizations.
