Welcome. This site is a resource for students, staff, faculty, alumni, and others interested in learning about what student groups at Indiana University of Pennsylvania can do to prevent hazing. Since hazing is a national problem that occurs in high schools, colleges, and other settings, this information may be useful to visitors as well.
Although hazing is not unique to IUP, we believe that it is important to examine these practices explicitly in an attempt to overcome the secrecy that perpetuates them.
While being part of a campus group can be one of the most meaningful aspects of student life, hazing is a serious problem that undermines the value of these experiences for many individuals.
