Hazing Prevention

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.
