Student Handbook

Hazing

Hazing at Macalester College involves committing an act against a student or coercing a student to commit an act that creates a risk of harm to a person in order to be a member or affiliated with a student organization, club or sports team. The risk may be of a physical, mental or emotional nature.
A member of the College community who knowingly, intentionally and willfully participates in activities defined as hazing will be subject to disciplinary proceedings.
When a member of the community believes they have experienced hazing, the individual may choose to bring the concern to the Macalester College Harassment Committee or file a complaint which refers the matter directly to the Student Conduct process. In some instances, the College or the Macalester College Harassment Committee (MCH) may intervene without a student complaint, and may take disciplinary action or refer to the Student Conduct process.
