Students, faculty, and staff must work to prevent Hazing within the scope of their individual authority and must report suspected Hazing incidents to the NAU Police Department in an emergency, to the Dean of Students, or in cases involving employees, to the appropriate vice president or Human Resources. Students and Student Organizations that engage in Hazing are subject to disciplinary action and sanctions up to and including expulsion or de-registration. University employees who knowingly permit, authorize, or condone Hazing are subject to disciplinary action. It is not possible for Hazing victims to consent or acquiesce to Hazing. The Northern Arizona University Police Department or other appropriate law enforcement agencies will investigate Hazing activity that appears to violate Arizona law.
