Does your organization have a bylaw or statement regarding hazing? The governing document of Sigma Lambda Beta is our National Constitution, every Undergraduate and Alumni entity is also required to have bylaws. The purpose of fraternity education is just that education about the Fraternity, about the chapter, the active organization, and the college/university. It is education about past and present Brothers, and it is education about what makes a good members. The senseless act of hazing not only creates liability risk for the chapter and Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity, Inc., but also hinders the development of the friendships that are the basis of Brotherhood. The majority of states consider hazing to be a felony. This means that, in those states, a lawsuit resulting from a hazing activity might exclude insurance coverage for members who were aware of or condoned a hazing activity.
