Hazing Prevention Resources

Are you a staff member or student looking to expand hazing prevention efforts on your campus this upcoming academic year? Would you like to know more about hazing-what it is (and isn’t), things you or your organization can do instead of hazing, and what to do when hazing is happening? Wondering how to address a specific issue related to hazing in a student organization or athletic team? Or are you looking for some resources to create hazing prevention programs and activities on your campus?

On this page you’ll find a documentary, webinars, informational and activity handouts, and additional resources that can be implemented and utilized on your campus. These materials are ideally meant to contribute to broader year-round campus-based hazing prevention efforts. However, they can also be used for single-activity programs and during National Hazing Prevention Week. StopHazing worked with The Clery Center For Security On Campus, The National Center on Safe Supportive Learning, and members of the Hazing Prevention Consortium to develop many of these materials. Have a question about any of these resources? Want to let us know how you’re using this information on your campus?

Documentaries / Prevention Programming

We Don’t Haze: StopHazing worked with The Clery Center For Security On Campus to develop “We Don’t Haze,” a 17-minute documentary to promote hazing prevention on college campuses. The documentary shares the perspectives of those who have had their lives impacted by hazing and touches on key themes related to hazing prevention, including examples of hazing, how to recognize hazing behaviors, and alternatives to hazing. In collaboration with The Clery Center For Security On Campus, StopHazing developed companion materials to be used in conjunction with the film, including hazing prevention briefs for college and university professionals and for general audiences, discussion / facilitation guides to be used with students and staff, along with several other resources. The trailer to the film can be viewed above and the full documentary is available for free here. Supplemental resources to the film are available both here and below.
