Does your organization have a bylaw or statement regarding hazing? Hazing is against the law; therefore, all forms of hazing are prohibited.
Hazing is defined as any action taken or situation created, with or without consent, intentionally or unintentionally, whether on or off Fraternity premises, that endangers the life or safety of a member or has the potential to cause bodily injury, that produces mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule. Such activities and situations include creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; wearing apparel that is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts and jokes; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; late night sessions which interfere with scholastic activities; and any other activities that are not consistent with the regulations and policies of the educational institution.
Phi Sigma Sigma believes in member development not hazing. The objective of member development is to develop a dynamic sisterhood. Member development should promote interest in Phi Sigma Sigma and be positive, informative and enjoyable. Member development should embody the principles of our ritual and core values.
All member activities should accomplish one or more of the following goals:
* Help members become better acquainted with each other.
* Help members learn about life, the university, community, the chapter and self.
* Help members to learn about Phi Sigma Sigma, its core values, ritual and traditions.
* Help members involve themselves in the work and success of the chapter.
* Help members learn about group interaction.
* Help members further develop leadership skills and accountability.
It is a responsibility of all members to report any hazing incidents to Phi Sigma Sigma Headquarters.
