                     Section 1: Conceptual Framework/Collaboration and Support

University and Community Collaboration (A)

Development of Programming Strategy/Description of Collaboration

        In the summer of 2009, 5 staff members from the University of Kentucky attended the Novak

Institute for Hazing Prevention at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. These staff members

represented the areas of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, Student Conduct, Student Involvement and

Athletics. Upon returning to our campus these staff members began the process of forming a Hazing

Prevention Coalition at UK. Over the course of the next three months, the staff reached out to a cross-

section of individuals within the University community and invited them to attend an informational

meeting regarding hazing at the University of Kentucky. At this meeting information was disseminated

regarding the 2008 National Hazing Study and data relevant to our students at the University of

Kentucky was explored. Additionally the group reviewed a record of past incidents at UK to give the

group perspective on the actual issues our students face on a daily basis regarding hazing. At the

conclusion of this meeting the staff informed everyone of our intention to form a Hazing Prevention

Coalition and that anyone who was interested in helping in our efforts to prevent hazing at UK would be

welcome to join.

        Over the course of the next 8 months our Coalition met a total of 7 times. In the weeks

between, the staff who attended the Novak Institute held an additional 10 meetings to discuss progress

and to organize future meetings. The Coalition itself grew to approximately 25 members and included

representation from student leaders, the Academic Ombud, Violence Intervention and Prevention

Center, Alcohol & Health Education, Risk Management, New Student and Parent Programs, UK Police

Department, UK Counseling Center, Athletics, Campus Recreation, UK Office of Institutional Equality, UK

Public Relations, Residence Life, UK Parent Association, Alumni Affairs and representatives from Phi

Gamma Delta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s headquarters staff (official roster provided as Addendum A).




                                                    2
This group identified three major areas of work for the year and we split off into committees that

focused on hazing prevention education, hazing policy review, and assessment of hazing activities. The

Coalition meetings consisted of committee updates and group discussion around the relevant issue of

the day (e.g. policy writing, inclusion of an amnesty clause, review of assessments, etc). By the end of

the 2009-2010 academic year our coalition had accomplished the following:

    1. Recruitment of members to the Hazing Prevention Coalition
    2. Assessment of the Parent Advisory Council to reveal how parents perceive the issue of hazing
       (Addendum B)
    3. Review of hazing prevention programs at UK
    4. Best practices inventory of UK benchmark institutions
    5. Readdressing hazing in UK publications (see Insiders Guide and K Book in Addendum C)
    6. Development of a new hazing assessment to be given to new members of Greek-letter
       organizations, student athletes and club sports participants (Addendum D)
    7. Student-developed program for hazing prevention given to new members of Greek-letter
       organizations
    8. Review of UK hazing definition and policy
    9. Rewriting of UK hazing definition and policy submitted for Administrative Regulation approval
       (Addendum E)

    The Coalition decided to send 5 more members to the Novak Institute in the Summer of 2010,

sending 2 student members, 2 new staff members and 1 staff member for a second time, in order to

gather additional information and to relearn some of the material from the initial Institute. This group

returned to campus excited about the opportunities ahead of it, and we have since reconvened the

Hazing Coalition twice this semester to discuss strategies for this academic year. This year’s focus is on

continued assessment, structures for incident reporting, broadened education and inclusion, message

development, recruitment to a student hazing prevention group, and incident response.



Letter of Support from a Senior-Level Administrator (B)

        Attached to this document in Addendum F (electronic copy only) is a letter of support provided

by our Vice President of Student Affairs at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Robert Mock.




                                                     3
                                        Section 2: Program Design

Reflection of Research (A)

The Hazing Prevention Coalition based much of its program strategy on four main areas of research: 1)

The National Study of Student Hazing (Allen & Madden, 2008) specifically the responses from students

at the University of Kentucky, 2) research gleaned from the Novak Institute on Hazing Prevention

specifically as it relates to Coalition formation and prevention research, 3) best practices inventory from

our Council on Post-Secondary Education identified benchmarks, and 4) information relevant to hazing

incidents at the University of Kentucky including policies, programs, educational efforts, documents, etc.

Each of these areas informed the discussion in unique ways, leading us to the targeted outcomes in

Spring of 2010.

        1) National Study of Student Hazing…Based on the outcomes from the surveys given to

            students at the University of Kentucky, we were able to identify that hazing was a campus

            wide problem, noting that nearly 55% of students involved in student organizations

            experienced at least one hazing behavior because of their involvement. Additionally we

            identified that a key educational opportunity existed by clarifying the definition of hazing

            and by spreading the message of hazing prevention. In the study, 72% of respondents

            claimed to be aware of organizations that haze on our campus, yet only 21% indicated that

            they have witnessed hazing. Similarly only 4% of our students claim to have been hazed in

            college, yet 55% admitted to having participated in a hazing activity. This statistic stood out

            to the Coalition as being indicative of our students’ disconnect between the definition of

            hazing and what activities students consider to be hazing.

        2) Research gleaned from the Novak Institute…After two years of attendance at the Novak

            Institute, we identified the prevention research based on the need for Coalition formation,

            bystander behavior and prevention research to be the most impactful in the design of our




                                                     4
   Coalition. We identified that the Coalition needed involvement from multiple areas of

   campus in order to get our message out, including the involvement of parents, community

   partners, and outside entities. By utilizing this information we intentionally sought out the

   involvement of these groups so that we could further inform our Coalition. In a similar way,

   we leaned on the work being done here at UK in our Violence Intervention and Prevention

   Office concerning sexual assault prevention, and identified key components of the message

   of hazing prevention to be utilized in our groups. We began to design bystander

   intervention programs for all levels of membership in student organizations from the

   general member to the organization president.

3) Benchmarking/Best Practices Inventory…In an effort to expand our Coalition’s programming

   and design, we conducted a best practices inventory with many of our University and state

   Council on Postsecondary education identified benchmarks. This inventory consisted of

   phone calls and internet searches for hazing at their institutions. In examining 18

   benchmark universities across the country, it was found that only four of these institutions

   (Purdue, UCLA, Florida, Michigan) currently have a centralized website devoted to global

   issues of hazing. Common headings and topics in these websites included state and

   university laws and policy, resources and links both on campus and nationally, myths and

   facts, how to report, examples, definitions, and alternatives to hazing. Searching for hazing

   information at the remaining benchmarks (Michigan State, North Carolina State, Ohio State,

   Pennsylvania State, Texas A&M, Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Carolina,

   Virginia, Washington) generally brought up links for their student code of conduct

   handbooks or policies on hazing. This information was geared more toward specific areas

   (e.g. Greek Affairs, club and team sports, student organizations, athletics) rather than a

   university-wide effort to address hazing. This information helped us to understand that




                                           5
           while we may feel like we are behind in the design of effective programs, we are actually

           doing as much or more than our peers in the way of hazing prevention. We also used the

           inventory to review hazing policies at our benchmarks to determine how we should best

           approach the rewriting of our hazing policy.

       4) Information relevant to hazing incidents at the University of Kentucky including policies,

           programs, educational efforts, documents, etc….Addendum G contains a spreadsheet of

           reported hazing-related incidents at UK over the past three years. We utilized this

           information to assist in the formulation of a policy relevant to hazing prevention. This data,

           coupled with conversations during the conduct hearings regarding these incidents, provided

           us with the understanding that many of these hazing issues had been present in these

           organizations for years, and while no one was truly comfortable with allowing hazing to

           continue, the leaders of the organizations were less comfortable coming forward to discuss

           new ways of educating their members due to fear of retribution from the University if past

           actions were revealed. The overwhelming majority of students we talked to said that their

           fear in reporting past hazing practices was that University administrators would use the

           information to punish their organization instead of having conversation with student leaders

           about ways to improve their education programs for new members. This piece of research

           more than any led us to consider adding an “amnesty” clause in the rewriting of our hazing

           prevention policy.

Holistic Nature of the Program (B)

       1) List and describe campus hazing prevention, intervention and educational programming

           efforts:

               a. Greek Officer Hazing Prevention Workshop- In the fall semester, the Office of
                      Fraternity and Sorority Affairs hosts workshops for chapter presidents and new




                                                     6
     member educators to discuss hazing as a community issue and to help facilitate
     conversation around positive activities that do not involve hazing.

b. Greek New Member Hazing Prevention Seminar- In the fall and spring semesters, the
     3 governing councils of Greek-letter organizations host hazing prevention
     workshops for all new members. During these workshops new members are
     provided with information regarding the definition of hazing, the realities of hazing
     on our campus, a statistical background of hazing in the Greek community,
     information on how to report a hazing incident and signs of potential hazing
     behavior within a chapter.

c. Registered Student Organizations- Officers of all registered student organizations
     are required to come to an informational meeting on University policies and
     regulations. During that meeting hazing is discussed and the officers are given a
     variety of potential hazing scenarios to talk through with each other to determine
     which incidents are or are not hazing, and are given tools to help determine if an
     activity could be considered hazing.

d. NCAA Student Athletes- At the beginning of each fall semester all student athletes
     are required to attend a presentation from the University Compliance Office
     regarding NCAA policies. A section on hazing prevention is included in this
     presentation.

e. Club Sports- The captains of the club sports teams meet regularly with the club
     sports director at UK. During those one-on-one and group meetings, one of the
     major topics of conversation is hazing prevention within their team and education
     on the University’s hazing prevention policies.

f.   ROTC- The University of Kentucky divisions of ROTC educate all new cadets and
     officers of the strict no-hazing policies enforced by the United States Government
     and the University of Kentucky.

g. Parent’s session- During the University of Kentucky’s K Week (fall welcome week for
     new students) the Hazing Prevention Coalition hosts a hazing prevention session
     designed for parents. During the session, we attempt to answer their questions in
     regards to what hazing is, how they may respond, who to contact at the University




                                       7
           and what signs to look for to see if hazing is occurring in their students’
           organizations.


2) Audiences our programming effort is designed for:

       The Hazing Prevention Coalition identified numerous audiences as target groups for our

       hazing prevention programming and education. Through our efforts we have reached

       out to and connected with: Greeks, Athletes, Club Sports, Registered Student

       Organizations, ROTC, Performing Arts Groups, Student Government, Residence Life,

       Student Organization Advisors, Campus Administrators, Academic Advisors, UK Public

       Relations, UK Legal, Faculty, Parents, Alumni, Neighborhood Associations, Community

       Partners, Police, National Organizations, and Human Resources.

3 & 4) Describe and document communication efforts:

       The Hazing Prevention Coalition has adopted a variety of arenas for its communication

   strategies. To connect with students, we have reached out to the Kentucky Kernel, the

   independent student daily newspaper, for opportunities for editorial columns and/or

   coverage of the efforts being made by the Hazing Prevention Coalition. This link:

   http://kykernel.com/2010/11/04/student-government-addresses-hazing/ provides the most

   recent coverage of the Hazing Prevention Coalition and highlights our efforts to work hand

   in hand with Student Government to rewrite the University’s hazing prevention policy.

   Additionally, we have reached out to students through one-on-one meetings, presentations

   at student organization orientations and summer advising conferences, meetings with

   sports teams and the utilization of printed pamphlets. New students receive a copy of the K

   Book, UK’s new student handbook, which used as the textbook in many of our UK 101

   academic orientation course sections. The K Book includes a section on hazing prevention




                                            8
   and education. (Electronic Addendum: Campus resources pg 88 Award Document

   Addendum C)

       Parents and community members receive information regarding hazing prevention

   through the previously mentioned avenues, but also through a publication designed

   specifically for them: The Insider’s Guide to UK. This publication is sent to all parents of

   incoming freshmen and includes a section on recognizing hazing and reporting hazing to the

   appropriate officials at UK (Electronic Addendum: InsidersGuide10 pg 70 Award Document

   Addendum C). Additionally, we have had articles run on UK’s website, UKnow (a public

   relations directed website), discussing the efforts of the Hazing Prevention Coalition. The

   Coalition is also in the process of creating a Facebook page with links to UK’s policy on

   hazing and to reporting structures for hazing incidents. Also an effort is being made to craft

   a 140-character message that can be used in social media outlets to spread the message of

   hazing prevention throughout our campus. Lastly we would like to develop an anti-hazing

   website in order to centralize our message of hazing prevention for the UK community.

5) Document how the college has created and enforced policies to support hazing prevention:

       Attached to this document (Addendum E) is the newly proposed Hazing Prevention

   Policy for the University of Kentucky. Prior to last Spring, the University’s policy was limited

   to a definition provided in the Student Code of Conduct, and the policy was limited only to

   student hazing. With the addition of this document to the University of Kentucky’s

   Administrative Regulations, the University has expanded hazing prevention to all members

   of the community including students, staff, faculty, alumni and visitors. This change in

   policy identifies the responsibility we all have to work to prevent hazing, but also provides

   some recourse for those non-student members of the University community who choose to




                                            9
   participate in the hazing of a student or colleague, or have knowledge of hazing and choose

   to ignore or not report it.

       Additionally, the new Hazing Prevention Policy provides opportunities for groups and

   organizations who wish to change the organizational culture to self-report hazing behaviors

   without fear of retribution for past incidents. Through conversations with multiple students

   who were involved in the writing of this policy, it became apparent that student leaders did

   not feel comfortable approaching staff and administration to create change in their

   organization due to a fear of retribution. Our hope is that this shift in policy will invite more

   groups to come forward and seek assistance in changing their organizational culture.

       Addendum G provides information regarding hazing activities reported in the past 2.5

   years at the University of Kentucky and how the violations of that policy were addressed.

   This document also provides insight into what methods of hazing are most commonly used.

   Also evident is the overwhelming omission of reports for non-Greek-lettered organizations.

   Despite research that suggests students involved in all organizations experience hazing,

   currently the only incidents reported to the Conduct Office are related to Greek-letter

   organizations. This identifies an area of growth for our Coalition, and the need for us to

   continue to expand the message of hazing prevention and reporting to other audiences.

6) Discuss how hazing prevention programs have augmented the mission of the institution

       Integrity, Social Responsibility, Mutual Respect and Human Dignity, and Civic

   Engagement, are the values of the University of Kentucky. Tolerance of hazing in any form

   violates each of these values and does not support the pursuit of these values within our

   University community. The Hazing Prevention Coalition augments the University’s mission

   by working to create an environment where students feel safe from harm and know that

   their right to dignity and respect as individuals will be protected. By spreading the message




                                            10
            of hazing prevention and education, we are assisting all members of the University

            community in the continued promotion of our stated values. A community that allows

            hazing to continue does not uphold integrity, is socially irresponsible, denies mutual respect

            and human dignity and does not create civically engaged citizens. As such we have provided

            the following statement as the introduction to our Hazing Prevention Policy:

                “The University of Kentucky is dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy campus

                environment for its students, faculty, staff and visitors. In addition, the University of

                Kentucky is committed to promoting an environment that fosters respect for the dignity

                and rights of all its community members. As such, the University will not tolerate hazing

                activities by any individuals, groups, teams, or registered/unregistered student

                organizations.”

Inclusion in Short and Long Term Planning Initiatives for Wellness and Community Safety (C)

        The efforts of the Hazing Prevention Coalition are connected with the prevention efforts being

made at the University of Kentucky to promote alcohol education as well as violence intervention and

prevention. These areas have the opportunity to work together collectively in continuing to propagate

the Bystander Intervention Model. Currently our VIP Center does an excellent job with spreading the

message of bystander intervention, and the Hazing Prevention Coalition uses that knowledge base to

help students connect to the concept of hazing prevention and intervention. Similarly our Alcohol &

Health Education Office works directly with University Health Service to promote a Student Wellness

Ambassador program, and we have had continued conversations with Alcohol & Health Education staff

about connecting the message of hazing prevention to the ambassador education program.

        The Hazing Prevention Coalition has also worked directly with the University Police, and we are

in negotiations to utilize the “tip line” provided by our police department to get more immediate

feedback on anonymous reporting. If we can achieve it, there will be a centralized call line for all hazing




                                                     11
incidents, and instead of utilizing an outside vendor for the monitoring of calls, we can keep the process

“in-house” and connect the University Police to the issue of hazing in our community.

        Other examples of short-term programs and connections come through programs offered by

Residence Life and the Counseling Center. Both of these areas have been essential in helping us develop

our programming and in getting the message out to students. By connecting our message to these

areas, we have increased the potential for interaction with a victim of hazing either through the

individual seeking out counseling or through the front line initial questioning of a student who may be

showing signs of victimization. In this way we can connect students with necessary resources to help

them deal with these incidents of hazing on a psychological level but also encourage them to come

forward with reports against the organizations or individuals who are perpetrating the hazing against

them.

                                   Section 3: Strategy and Evaluation

Program Assessment and Evaluation (A)

    1) Measurable Student Learning Outcomes

            a. Increased Reporting:
                    i. Demonstrates increased education as to the University definition of hazing
                   ii. Measured by tracking incident reports to the Dean of Students and UK Police

            b. Increased Student Involvement in Coalition:
                     i. Demonstrates ability of the coalition to connect with students about this issue
                    ii. Measured by tracking the sustainability of the Student Hazing Prevention
                        Coalition
                   iii. Measured by tracking the number of students who attend Hazing Prevention
                        Coalition meetings

            c. Student Body Acknowledging Hazing as an Issue:
                    i. Demonstrates the Coalition’s ability to deliver the message of hazing prevention
                   ii. Measured by conducting random student surveys and tracking increases and
                       decreases in student’s ability to identify hazing as an important campus topic

            d. Increased Involvement in Hazing Prevention Coalition by “Other Groups”
                    i. Measured by gaining involvement in the Hazing Prevention Coalition from UK
                       Band, Performing Arts Groups, Honors Society, Not Currently Registered
                       Student Organizations



                                                    12
2) Document How Assessment and Processes Were Used to Evaluate, Sustain and Drive Future
   Improvements to the Program

       a. UK Parent Advisory Council Survey:

               i. In the Fall of 2009 the Hazing Prevention Coalition conducted a survey

                  (Addendum B) with the UK Parent Advisory Council. The survey consisted of 6

                  questions allowing the parents to write their definition of hazing and activities

                  they believe to be associated with hazing. The Council consisted of 15 parents,

                  and each responded to the survey. Results are attached (Addendum H). This

                  survey helped us identify 1) the need for increased parental involvement in the

                  discussion of hazing at UK, 2) that parents identify hazing as an issue on our

                  campus, 3) that parents are aware of incidents of hazing on our campus and

                  often do not report, 4) that our message regarding hazing is confusing, and 5)

                  information regarding how to report hazing is unclear and not easily accessible.

                  This survey helped us direct the following goals for the project: 1) define a clear

                  message for hazing prevention, 2) increase education to the definition of hazing,

                  and 3) increase communication to all entities.

       b. UK Benchmarking:

               i. By gathering benchmarking data, the Coalition was able to determine what (if

                  any) best practices exist in hazing prevention at other institutions. The Coalition

                  utilized website searches and phone calls to individual universities to determine

                  what (if any) information was being disseminated about hazing prevention. This

                  benchmarking information identified that: 1) we are not the only university

                  struggling to define the message of hazing prevention, 2) we need a better

                  communication strategy, and 3) we need to revise our anti-hazing policy to

                  match best practices.



                                               13
c. New Member Surveys:

       i. In an attempt to gather new survey data about our incoming students in the Fall

          of 2010, the Hazing Prevention Coalition conducted surveys (Addendum D) with

          new student athletes and new members of fraternities and sororities at UK.

          This survey focused on previous experiences with hazing in high school, student

          expectations of hazing in their organization/team, student’s ability to define

          hazing (written response), ability of student to identify certain behaviors as

          hazing, and what (if any) action a student would take when confronted with

          hazing. We are still in the process of reviewing the data from these surveys;

          however from an initial review, we were able to identify that: 1) a student’s

          definition of hazing (written) typically leans to physical abuse and forced

          consumption of alcohol, 2) activities the University identifies as hazing do not

          match activities students identify as hazing, and 3) students report expecting to

          participate in hazing activities in their organizations. This information has

          helped us identify the need to provide students with information regarding

          hazing as soon as possible in their college careers in order to best prevent them

          from exposure to hazing.

   At this time, no money has been allocated to ensure the continuation of the Hazing Prevention

   Coalition in the future. In tight budget times, little to no monetary resources are available for new

   efforts at the University of Kentucky. When we initially discussed the formulation of the Hazing

   Prevention Coalition with upper administration, we discussed whether it would be more effective

   for members of the Coalition to be formally appointed by administration or if the Coalition should

   form from an informal grass-roots effort. It was identified at that time that an institutional mandate

   for the formulation of the Hazing Prevention Coalition was not likely but that our efforts would be

   supported through informal means. The sustainability of our Coalition lies in the dedication of the

   members to the issue of hazing prevention on our campus, as well as members’ continued

   willingness to commit staff hours to improving the campus environment.

2) How Will the Institution Benefit from Receiving the ZTA Award

       a. Improved Communication… With the creation of a website, the University will be able to

           centralize the message of hazing prevention in one place and provide students, parents,

           faculty and staff with an interactive resource to which they can refer to on their own

           time. The website will provide educational programming options, links to current policy,

           options for alternative programming, and a place to submit hazing reports. The award

           will also allow us to develop educational materials for students, parents, faculty and

           staff that they may reference if confronted with a hazing activity.

       b. Increased Educational Opportunities…By supporting a Peer Education Team, the award

           will allow us to craft and deliver educational programs on a peer-to-peer basis and

           provide that team with some resources to get started. Additionally, we intend to use a

           portion of the award to continue to send students to the Novak Institute on Hazing

           Prevention, which will in turn inform the Peer Education Team in the development of

           their message.

       c. Increased Visibility of the Issue of Hazing…If the University of Kentucky receives this

           award, the Hazing Prevention Coalition will utilize the recognition to jump start a

           campaign to raise the issue of hazing prevention into the minds of administrators and

           students at the University. While the work we have been doing so far has received the

           attention of those involved, recognition of this level will boost the image of the Coalition

           on our campus. Visibility will also be increased via the creation of the website, the

           production of educational materials, and the funding of a Peer Education Team within

           the Student Hazing Prevention Coalition.

3) Provide a detailed budgetary plan for the $10,000 award

The following section shows a 2009-2010 comparison in the message delivered to parents regarding
hazing. In the 2009 Insider’s Guide language was specific to fraternity and sorority membership despite
the fact that we know hazing to exist in all student organizations. In the 2010 version we were able to
change the message to a campus wide issue with hazing prevention.


2009 Insider’s Guide Handbook for New UK Parents Language:

Hazing
UK’s social fraternities and sororities offer countless opportunities for students to meet like-minded
individuals, develop leadership skills, have fun, and give back to the University and local community.
With these goals in mind, the University of Kentucky has a strong, zero-tolerance policy regarding hazing
for all of its student organizations. Fraternity and sorority members are educated on the dangers of such
practices on an ongoing basis. Hazing, or any activity that subjects members to harassment, ridicule,
intimidation, physical exhaustion, or mental distress, is entirely contrary to the purposes of the Greek
community and the University and is not tolerated. If you ever feel your son or daughter may be
participating in inappropriate activities, whether in a fraternity, sorority, or any other student
organization, you should contact the Dean of Students Office immediately at (859) 257-3151.


2010 Insider’s Guide Handbook for New UK Parents Language:

Hazing
Colleges and universities around the country work hard to create a safe learning environment for their
students, and yet no institution is immune from the dangers presented by hazing. Reports of hazing
behaviors are taken from a wide variety of organizations including athletic teams, performing arts
groups, honor societies, and Greek letter organizations. Due to the physical and psychological dangers,
the University of Kentucky has adopted a strong zero-tolerance policy regarding hazing for all of its
student organizations. The University of Kentucky defines hazing as any action taken or situation
created‚ intentionally or recklessly‚ whether on or off University premises‚ to produce mental or physical
discomfort‚ embarrassment‚ harassment‚ or ridicule. If you ever feel your son or daughter may be
participating in inappropriate activities in any student organization, team, or group, please contact the
Dean of Students Office immediately at (859) 257-3754.

                  UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY HAZING POLICY
I. Introduction

  The University of Kentucky is dedicated to promoting a safe and healthy campus environment
  for its students, faculty, staff and visitors. In addition, the University of Kentucky is
  committed to promoting an environment that fosters respect for the dignity and rights of all its
  community members. As such, the University will not tolerate hazing activities by any
  individuals, groups, teams, or registered/unregistered student organizations.

II. Definitions

  A. Definition of Hazing for Members of the University Community
       Regardless of the individual’s willingness to participate, hazing is any action or situation
       created involving new or returning organizational members that meets any of the
       following:
       1. Is negligent or reckless in nature
       2. Is humiliating or endangers an individual
       3. Is not reflective of the organization’s mission, purpose or values

   B. Examples of hazing behaviors include but are not limited to the following:

       1. Forced consumption of food, alcohol, or drugs
       2. Paddling in any form
       3. Creation of unnecessary fatigue
       4. Personal servitude
       5. Physical and/or psychological shocks
       6. Wearing apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste
       7. Degrading or humiliating games and activities
       8. Sleep or food deprivation
       9. Unreasonable exposure to the weather
       10. Kidnapping or abandonment
       11. Line-ups and berating
       12. Undue interference with academic pursuits
       13. Expectation of participation in activities that are illegal, lewd or in violation of
           University policy

       This list is not intended to be inclusive of all activities that could be considered hazing.

   C. “Members of the University Community” include its faculty, staff, students, volunteers,
       patients, customers, alumni and visitors.
III. Policy

    A. Hazing in any form is prohibited.

    B. This regulation applies to all Members of the University community.

    C. This regulation applies to behavior that occurs on or off University property.

    D. The implied or expressed consent of a student to hazing is not a defense under this policy.

    E. Retaliating in any manner against any individual who reports hazing or who participates
       in an investigation of a hazing report is prohibited

    F. Making an intentionally false accusation of hazing through the University’s procedures is
       prohibited.

    G. Culpability for any violations of this policy may be attributed to the perpetrators, the
       student organization or team, its members and/or its officers. A student organization or
       team may be found culpable upon satisfactory proof that the organization or team did not
       discourage or did not take reasonable steps to prevent hazing by its members or affiliates.

    H. All elected or appointed student organization presidents shall register with the
       appropriate University office and agree to the rights and responsibilities statement
       indicating that they will comply with the terms of the University of Kentucky Hazing
       Policy. Compliance is required from the time they take office.

    I. All elected or appointed student organization presidents or designee shall educate their
       respective organization members on the applicable University policies concerning hazing.

    J. In addition to this policy, NCAA Student Athletes shall follow the policies and guidelines
       set forth by the NCAA, SEC and University of Kentucky Athletic Compliance office.

IV. Rights of those who report

    A. Individuals who are victims of hazing and who truthfully report the activities to the Dean
       of Students and/or University of Kentucky Police Department will not be individually
       charged with a violation of the hazing policy.

    B. An organization or team that seeks assistance in preventing hazing from occurring within
       the organization – even if past behaviors have included hazing – will not be charged with
       a violation of University of Kentucky hazing policy.

    C. Any organization that self-reports a hazing behavior to a University Official may be
       given the opportunity to change those behaviors without immediate threat of being
       charged with a violation of the University of Kentucky hazing policy. When self-
       reporting to a University Official, the organization must identify those individuals



                                                26
      responsible for the hazing behaviors. If evidence is presented in subsequent semesters
      that hazing behaviors have continued within the organization, that organization may be
      held responsible for past behaviors.

   D. Any University Official who receives a report of hazing should communicate that report
      to the Dean of Students Office as soon as practicable.

V. Delegation

   Authority for enforcement of this policy is vested with the Provost, or the appropriate
   executive vice president or vice president, in conjunction with the Dean of Students, or their
   designee.

VI. Compliance

   A. Violation of this regulation may result in corrective action under the Student Code of
      Conduct, Human Resources Policies and Procedures, or other applicable University
      Regulations or Policies. Visitors refusing to comply may be reported to the campus
      police.

   B. All individuals, organizations, and departments are expected to comply with this policy
      and support its intent. Copies of the policy and related forms will be provided to each
      registered student organization. Additional copies may be requested from the Dean of
      Students Office.

   C. The Dean of Students Office monitors the implementation of this policy. Complaints or
      reports of activities believed to be hazing should be reported to the University Police
      Department ((859) 257-8573). Alleged policy violations should also be directed to the
      Dean of Students Conduct Office (513 Patterson Office Tower (859) 257-3754) who will
      then work with the appropriate University officials to investigate the report. Any
      questions concerning the interpretation or application of this policy should be referred to
      the Dean of Students Conduct Office for resolution.

   D. Violations of this policy are subject to referral to appropriate law enforcement and/or
      campus agencies, as well as to regional and national affiliated offices, for action or
      prosecution.

   E. A student organization may be suspended or restricted from University Property for an
      interim period pending disciplinary proceedings. This action may be initiated by the Vice
      President for Student Affairs, or a designee. The interim suspension or restriction is
      effective without prior notice when there is evidence that the continued presence of the
      organization on the University campus, or in specific facilities, poses a threat to persons
      or to the stability and continuance of normal University functions.




                                              27
   F. It is not a defense to a charge of hazing that:
           1. The consent of the victim had been obtained;
           2. The conduct or activity that resulted in the hazing of a person was not part of an
               official organizational event or was not otherwise sanctioned or approved by the
               organization; or
           3. The conduct or activity that resulted in hazing of the person was not done as a
               condition of membership to an organization.

   G. Violation of this policy or the Code of Student Conduct will result in appropriate
      sanctioning including, but not limited to, permanent or temporary suspension of
      registration, social probation, denial of use of University facilities, or other similar
      sanctions available under the Code of Student Conduct. Such determination of fault shall
      be done through the procedures outlined in the Code. A student organization that is
      suspended or expelled loses the status and privileges provided to registered student
      organizations. Students continuing to act in the name of the suspended or expelled
      student organization may be in violation of a sanction imposed under this Code and be
      subjected to Code of Student Conduct charges as individuals.

                                                was confronted he claimed the fraternity
                                                had asked him to tan the word 'TUFF'

   -   * Hazing “Heat Meter” is a diagnostic tool where the user can take a short survey online to determine their
       group’s level of hazing risk. Specific hazing behaviors would be coded [internally] with a point total based
       on severity and then the user would see the findings via a speedometer-like meter (green  red, low risk to
       high)
