SHEEO Query: Hazing Policies

Dear Academic Officers:

The Virginia General Assembly directed the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) to establish model policies regarding the prevention of and appropriate disciplinary action for hazing at postsecondary institutions.

As part of that effort SCHEV is doing an environmental scan of current policies in other states. Your response to the following questions by Monday, July 21, 2014 would be most appreciated:

  • Does your state provide a model policy, template, or guidance regarding hazing at institutions of higher education?
  • If your answer is “yes” please provide a copy (or link) to the model policy, template, or guidance regarding hazing at institutions of higher education.

Thank you for your help.

Please find responses here.
