  • Specific educational seminars given to first year athletes and new members of Greek letter organizations.

  • Provide social norm messaging around hazing prevention.
  • Provide bystander intervention training specific to hazing.
  • Provide resources, brochures, and posters to anyone on campus or in the greater community.

  • Student organizations and Greek letter organizations are invited to sign the University’s anti-hazing pledge.

The University of Maine is also partnered with the National Collaborative for Hazing Research and Prevention, who hosted the 2009 Hazing Symposium.  This affiliation allows us to:

  • Provide speakers and trainers for any group, anytime on research based prevention initiatives.
  • Provide campus hazing assessments and data collection to colleges and universities across the country.
  • Have staff that is directly involved with the most current hazing research.
