Hazing Prevention Resources
Hazing is defined in the Texas Penal Code as, “any intentional, knowing, or reckless act, occurring on or off the campus of the educational institution, be one person alone, or acting with others, directed against a student, that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student for the purpose of pledging, being initiated into, affiliating with, holding office in, or maintaining membership in an organization.
All of the inter/national fraternities and sororities on this campus recognize and adhere to the Anti-Hazing legislation and policies set forth by the State of Texas, UTSA and the individual inter/national fraternities and sororities. We support a zero tolerance for hazing. Incidents of hazing are subject to charge and sanctions for those found in violation by the university, local police and their respective inter/national fraternal organizations.
