Hazing Policy

Bellin College is dedicated to educating healthcare professionals through innovation, leadership, and service that promotes lifelong learning and excellence. Choosing to be part of the Bellin College community, students promise to treat the community with care and respect the dignity of all persons, including self; live with integrity, communicate truthfully, etc.

Hazing is any action or situation intentionally created that causes embarrassment, harassment or ridicule and risks emotional and/or physical harm to members of a group or team, whether new or not, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate. Hazing is also defined as an act which endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student, or which destroys or removes public or private property, for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in a group or organization.  

Bellin College will not tolerate hazing in any form. The student(s) involved will face disciplinary action separate from an organizational review. Students who are involved and charged with hazing will be subjected to the Student Behavior Conduct Process. All reports will be investigated. Hazing reports may be filed under a grievance or general complaint to the Director of Student Affairs and DEI.
