Hazing Policy

        Hazing is strictly prohibited at the University of Mary Washington. Specifically, the University defines hazing as any physical or mental interference, request, or obligation that could cause inconvenience, discomfort, pain, fright, embarrassment, disgrace, or injury; that is personally degrading; or that violates any federal, state, or local statute or University policy. Whether or not the student so endangered or injured voluntarily participates in the activity is not a factor in determining if the activity was hazing.
