Prevention & Training
Denison’s hazing policy and Ohio law require all students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and Denison affiliates to participate in educational training on hazing awareness, prevention, intervention, and on the elements of this policy.
Student training is offered as part of new student orientation. Any student who does not participate in the educational training on hazing awareness must make other arrangements to fulfill this obligation by working with the Alford Community, Leadership, and Involvement Center.
Students must participate in this educational training before they are allowed membership into any University-recognized campus organization or athletics team. Students who do not participate in the training will be barred from participating in any campus organization or athletics team.
Any campus organization or athletics team that grants membership to a student who has not participated in the educational training may be subject to the loss of University recognition, funding, or other privileges.
Denison’s hazing policy and the Ohio Revised Code require each campus organization to conduct anti-hazing training for any volunteer who has contact with students.
Any campus organization including, but not limited to, fraternities, sororities, club sports/intramurals, band/music ensembles, varsity athletics, etc., seeking to allow volunteers from outside of the campus community to be in contact with students should work with the Alford Community, Leadership, and Involvement Center (CLIC) on providing this training to volunteers.
