Carroll University seeks to promote a safe environment where students may participate in activities and organizations without compromising their health, safety, or welfare. Hazing in any form is against the law and is strictly prohibited at Carroll University. When this policy is violated, action may be taken against all participants, including pledges. The most damaging instrument to campus organizations (social, honor, service, athletics, etc.) is the employment of a program of education, pledging, membership, training, or induction which includes hazing. Hazing risks human lives, mistreats those involved and jeopardizes the affiliation of the campus organizations at this University.
