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 any act that endangers the mental, physical, or emotional health or safety of a student, or that 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. It includes participating in, condoning, encouraging, requiring, or allowing an opportunity for hazing. A hazing violation may occur even when the victim expressed or implied consent. 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.
