UM System Definition: Hazing, defined as an act that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student, or an act that is likely to cause physical or psychological harm to any person within the University community, or that destroys or removes public or private property, for the purpose of initiation, admission into, affiliation with, or as a condition for continued membership in a group or organization. Participation or cooperation by the person(s) being hazed does not excuse the violation. Failing to intervene to prevent, failing to discourage, and/or failing to report those acts may also violate this policy.
STEP UP! is Missouri S&T’s bystander intervention training and pro-social movement. It is a behavioral and educational program that aims to raise awareness of helping behaviors, increase motivation to help, develop skills and confidence when responding to problems or concerns, and ensure the safety and well-being of self and others.
The community values in action (CVIA) training is designed to help campus organizations articulate their values and identify what/when activities or actions of their members may become inconsistent with those values.

If you have been hazed, have witnessed hazing, or suspect that someone you know has been hazed, report it.
Reports may be submitted anonymously, but doing so may limit the ability of the University to respond.
