Physical and mental hazing is banned by VCU, national and international fraternities and sororities, and by the Commonwealth of Virginia statutes. Fortunately, student members of fraternities and sororities recognize that hazing has no place in their organizations and have eliminated it. All acts of hazing by any group, member, or alumni/alumnae are explicitly forbidden and are not tolerated by VCU.
No chapter, colony, student or alumnus shall conduct nor condone hazing activities, and all will support and follow the VCU Hazing Policy and VCU Student Code of Conduct. The governing councils implement all other policies and procedures.
