Hazing Policy
In accordance with the policies of Marshall University, the National Interfraternity Council, the National Panhellenic Conference, the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and all other national organizations represented on our campus, hazing is not permitted, and has no place in our student organizations. All acts of hazing by organization, member, and/or alumni are specifically forbidden. They are...

"Any action taken or situation created intentionally whether on or off campus, to produce mental, emotional, or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule. Such activities and situations may include paddling in any form; creation of excessive fatigue, i.e. any activity which deprives a student of at least six continuous hours of sleep; physical and psychological shocks; inappropriate quests, i.e. stealing items; treasure hunts; scavenger hunts; road trips; or any other such inappropriate activities carried on either on or off campus, or in a Greek house. Wearing publicly any apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste, as defined by the proper hearing bodies; engaging in public stunts and buffoonery; morally degrading or humiliating games and activities; or any other activities which are not consistent with fraternal law, ritual, or policies or regulations of national organizations or otherwise compromise the dignity of the individual including forced use and abuse of alcohol and drugs."

All complaints and/or requests for definition of hazing are to be filed with the Director of Judicial Affairs. All cases decided by the Judicial Board are appealed to the Student Conduct and Welfare Committee, and finally to the President of the University.

Non-Discrimination in Membership Selection
Every student organization recognized by Marshall University is expected to be free to select its membership upon the basis of individual merit without regard to race, color, ethnic origin, religious affiliation, age, physical or psychological handicap, or sexual preference. This policy applies to all student organizations recognized by Marshall University with the exception of those organizations specifically exempted by virtue of Sec. 804(b) of the Higher Education Act of 1965. Signature of appropriate officers verifies receipt and comprehension of the above statement. Marshall University reserves the right to consider withdrawal of recognition to any organization found, in due process, to be in violation of said policy.
