Anti- Hazing Reporting Form
Hazing in any form is contrary to the principles and policies of Lambda Theta Alpha Sorority and will not be condoned by the Sorority. Any person involved with hazing activities in any form is subject to disciplinary action by the Sorority including suspension and/or termination of membership in the Sorority.
The Sorority takes seriously any allegations of wrongdoing, including allegations that are made anonymously and allegations from persons using fictitious names or contact information. Please know, however, that when such allegations are made by persons who do not provide a basis for the Sorority to know who is the person making the allegation and his or her contact information, the Sorority’s abilities to investigate the allegations can be significantly compromised.
Lambda Theta Alpha Policy on Hazing
No chapter, interest group, student, or alumnus shall conduct nor condone hazing activities. Hazing activities for the sorority are defined as:
Any action taken or situation created, intentionally, whether on or off fraternity premises, to produce or that causes mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities may include but are not limited to the following: use of alcohol; paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue; physical and psychological shocks; quests, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, road trips or any other such activities carried on outside or inside of the confines of the chapter house; kidnappings, whether by pledges, associate/new members or active members; wearing of public apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste; engaging in public stunts and buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; and any other such activities that are not consistent with academic achievement, fraternal law, ritual or policy, or the regulations and policies of the educational institution, or applicable state law. Lambda Theta Alpha believes in providing constructive, educational, and inspirational programs for orientees, associate/new members or active members. Lambda Theta Alpha is opposed to any form of hazing including any activities, which do not contribute to the positive development and welfare of orientees. Lambda Theta Alpha believes that true Sisterhood is nurtured in an atmosphere of social and moral responsibility, respect for authority and loyalty to the principles of higher education.
