TUSKEGEE UNIVERSITY POLICY ON HAZING 

Student organizations including Fraternities and Sororities contribute to the development and education of Tuskegee University students, their dedication to community services, and academic achievement which makes all student organizations valued components of Tuskegee University life. 

Although we applaud the contributions of each student organization, those requiring a membership intake must adhere to intake program guidelines developed and administered by the Office of Student Life and Development. Tuskegee University is responsible to ensure that intake program and its related activities enhance the students' experience and are not in anyway detrimental to the University, the organization or the individual student. Consequently,  the University musty provide guidelines for the effective planning and management of the intake programs.

3. Any chapter found to be in violation will be suspended from activity on campus, after reviewing the circumstances surrounding the activity.
