Make Your Imprint on Hazing Prevention
National Hazing Prevention Week is scheduled for the last week in September. This week is intended to bring attention to the problem of hazing across the country, and provide the perfect opportunity for campuses and national organizations to plan educational activities for students and others.
Hazing has no place in Chi Omega, nor any other fraternal organization, as everything that is associated with hazing is antithetical to our highest teachings found in our ritual. Chi Omega has partnered with several other Greek groups to establish a National Hazing Prevention Hotline. The number, 1-888-NOT-HAZE (1-888-668-4293), will log calls anonymously and forward them to Chi Omega Executive Headquarters for immediate action and follow up. This system is managed through the Manley-Burke Law firm in Cincinnati, OH.
Visit the Womanly Always Chi Omega Learning Center to learn additional ways Chi Omega addresses this important topic. The Womanly Always site focuses on the importance of human dignity by addressing how inappropriate behaviors and traditions can destroy, not augment, one's self esteem.
