Hazing Information

The Office of the Dean of Student Life encourages student participation in athletics, Greek fraternities and sororities, and other student organizations. Such involvement enriches the university experience and can contribute significantly to the social and leadership development of Johns Hopkins University undergraduates. Antithetical to that experience and to the mission of the university is the practice of hazing, which is a violation of university policy and of state law.

Students, faculty, staff, and parents should acquaint themselves with the information and links on this page so that they may identify possible occurrences of hazing and understand consequences of such behavior. If you suspect that someone is being hazed, you are encouraged to contact the Johns Hopkins Compliance Line (1-844-SPEAK2US), an independently administered toll-free hotline that allows for anonymous reporting about serious concerns or violations.

Johns Hopkins student organizations and teams foster lifelong friendships, offer educational support, and contribute to a positive university experience. The Office of the Dean of Student Life expects that participants will act with integrity and according to the values of the university in all activities. Questions or concerns may be directed at any time to the Office of Student Life.
