Policies and Laws


At USF we have a Commitment to Honor. One of its tenants states:

"I resolve to respect the dignity and intrinsic value of all persons."

Hazing violates this Commitment, threatens our community and is not tolerated at the University of South Florida.

Committed to a safe and healthy campus, USF works to provide a supportive learning environment that encourages respect for the dignity and rights of the entire university community.

Hazing can be extremely detrimental to a community. It is important to know the policies and laws regarding hazing, the resources available to create organizations and teams that have strong community without hazing, and how to report any actions which could violate these policies and cause harm to our community.
