Anti-Hazing Policy

Fraternity Anti-Hazing Policy / Anti-Pledging Policy

No chapter of Gamma Mu Phi shall indulge in any physical abuse or undignified treatment (hazing) of its members or prospective members. Hazing is defined as: any action taken or situation created intentionally or unintentionally, whether on or off Fraternity premises, to produce mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule.

Such activities and situations include, but are not limited to:

  • paddling in any form
  • creation of excessive fatigue
  • physical and psychological shocks
  • engaging in any public stunts and buffoonery
  • morally degrading or humiliating games and activities
  • any other activities which are not consistent with Fraternal Law, Ritual, or Policy or with Regulations and Policies of Gamma Mu Phi Fraternity Incorporated

The Fraternity will take every measure to hold a member accountable for any acts of hazing in which he allows himself to become involved alone or in the company of others who are members or claimed members and knowingly protects those who engage in acts of hazing. For purpose of knowledge in this content we mean anyone who knows or should have known.

No applicant for membership in the Fraternity is required to subject himself to any form of hazing; the Prospective Member is specifically prohibited from tolerating or going along with any improper conduct during his Membership Intake Process in the form of hazing; and the Prospective Member is expected and requested to immediately contact a local, regional or national representative of the Fraternity by telephone, fax, e-mail or regular mail and notify him of said conduct.
