OUR MISSION: To provide methods of prevention and intervention in hazing; to explain the psychology of hazing in high school, college, the military, and the workplace.

What is hazing? Hazing is a process, based on a tradition that is used by groups to discipline and to maintain the hierarchy (i.e., a pecking order).

Where does hazing occur? Hazing occurs in middle school and high schools, as well as in colleges, the military and on the job. It occurs all over the United States and throughout the world.

Who is involved in hazing? All kinds of people are hazed, and all kinds of people haze others. Hazing is not a function of race. Hazing is not a function of socioeconomic class. Hazing occurs among people of all educational levels.

When does hazing happen? Hazing occurs throughout the year, though there is often an increase at the beginning of the fall and spring semester and at the beginning of all athletic seasons.

Why do people haze? There are many complex psychological reasons. Check out "The Blueprint of Hazing" and "The Perfect Storm" to really understand why hazing has continued since ancient times.

How Has Hazing Changed? This century has seen a rise in deaths and sodomy due to hazing rituals. In general, hazing has become more violent, more humiliating, and more sexual. Hazardous hazing is a virus that has attacked our youth and is spreading quickly.
