Hazing is against the law in Colorado and is a violation of the Student Conduct Code that may result in discipline of individuals and student organizations who engage in such conduct. Hazing means participating in, condoning, encouraging, requiring, or allowing an opportunity for hazing, which includes any act that endangers the mental, physical, or emotional health or safety of a student, or which destroys or removes public or private property for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in a group or student organization. The express or implied consent of the victim will not be a defense. Apathy or acquiescence in the presence of hazing is not neutral; they are violations of this rule.

For more information regarding hazing, resources available to students who may encounter it, and how to report instances of hazing, see the CSU End Hazing website
