Fresh Start Organizational Amnesty Policy

Members of an organization who are concerned that some of the organization's activities do not comply with Union's hazing policy may consult their supervising department head (e.g. Athletics, Fraternity and Sorority Life) confidentially for guidance.

Under the Fresh Start Program, an organization that fully discloses past or recent behavior in violation of the Hazing Policy will receive assistance as the group develops a new plan to replace the activities in question. With this disclosure, and full implementation of the program, the organization will not face College disciplinary action for the activities disclosed, unless the conduct contributed to causing physical harm to others.

Organizations who choose to report and request amnesty for their conduct under this Policy should know that they may be liable for criminal and civil penalties that are beyond Union's control.
