Fraternity and Sorority Non-Hazing Compliance Form We certify that all activities sponsored or required by our fraternity/sorority of members or candidates for membership/aspirant members comply with the Mansfield University Hazing Policy, and with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
We have informed the candidates for membership/aspirant members of our fraternity/sorority of the contents of the MU Hazing Policy. This policy will be read to candidates for membership/aspirants at the beginning of each semester’s new member/intake process.
We understand that failure to uphold or comply with the Student Code of Conduct will result in referral to the Office of Student Conduct for an organization violation of hazing and/or other applicable charges (meaning the fraternity/sorority will face charges), and/or referral to the Office of Student Conduct for an individual violation (meaning that individuals within the fraternity/sorority who haze will face charges).
We understand that participation in any hazing activity or knowledge of it and taking no action to stop the hazing is in effect giving our approval to haze. We understand our responsibility to not allow members of our organization, whether alumni, graduate status, or affiliated at another institution of higher education, to haze our aspirants/new members. Failure to report any such activity of which members become aware may cause said persons to be referred to the Office of Student Conduct.
Our signatures below certify that we have read, understand, and agree to abide by the Procedures for Intake/Recruitment and New Member Activities, and will not haze, nor tolerate another person hazing the aspirant/new members.

Date Date FIPG Definition of Hazing In recent years, criminal courts, the majority of national organizations and campuses alike have utilized the risk management policies of FIPG as the “industry standard” for all fraternities and sororities. As such, chapters should be aware of how FIPG defines hazing activities, as they may be accountable to the defined parameters. Hazing activities are defined as:
Any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce or that causes mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities may include but are not limited to the following: use of alcohol; paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; quests, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, road trips or any other such activities carried on outside or inside of the confines of the chapter house; kidnappings, whether by pledges, associate/new members or active members; wearing of public apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts and buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; and any other such activities that are not consistent with academic achievement, fraternal law, ritual or policy, or the regulations and policies of the educational institution, or applicable state law.
