Per Delta Chi’s Risk Management Policies, “No chapter, colony, member, Associate Member or alumnus shall conduct, participate in nor condone hazing activities. Permission or approval by a person being hazed is not a defense.”
Hazing is the antithesis of everything that we believe in as an organization and Delta Chi is committed to staying true to its values. Below you can find a list of resources to help combat hazing, educate yourself and others, and report hazing when you see it taking place.

The Anti-Hazing Coalition hosted a presentation and discussion to kick off National Hazing Prevention Week on Sunday, September 20, 2020.
The Hotline provides an anonymous telephone line for anyone to report a suspected or recent hazing incident to one number 1-888-NOT-HAZE (1-888-668-4293) that accepts calls 24 hours a day.
HPO is a national organization dedicated to empowering people to prevent hazing, by providing education and resources, advocating on hazing prevention, and building partnerships with others.
Each of the resources shares valuable information related to hazing prevention. Please browse through them and feel free to share with others. Let’s all work together to put an end to hazing.

Campus Assistance Program
The health and well-being of our members is of the utmost importance to Delta Chi. To assist our members in practicing good mental health, a service called the Campus Assistance Program (CAP) has been implemented for all initiated and Associate Members.
This service will provide members with professional crisis support and referral services to encourage you with personal, school or family related problems. Delta Chi has partnered with the Campus Assistance Program to recognize and combat struggles that might be interrupting your academic and personal life. The Campus Assistance Program is provided by the Division of Health Management Systems of America and is a trusted partner of the Delta Chi Fraternity.
The program is free to our members and is strictly confidential. Protecting the health and safety of all human beings is a concern to Delta Chi, and our members are no exception to this Basic Expectation.
The Campus Assistance Program can be accessed around-the-clock through a Virtual Empowerment Platform. The Platform provides self-help resources, problem identification tools, articles and on-demand webinars. The curriculum can be accessed 24 hours a day – 7 days a week – 365 days a year at:

Telephone requests can be made to (866) 227-3834. When you call, you will be able to report suspected threats of harm to self or others. It is our hope that our brothers who might need this resource will take advantage of this opportunity and receive assistance to any hardship they might be experiencing. As you and your colony/chapter complete these final weeks of the semester please continue to encourage one another to practice good mental health!
