SLS Intern Contribution: Hazing and UC San Diego

By SLS Legal Research and Writing Intern Sandy Garcia

A new quarter marks the beginning of on-campus organizations' recruitment of new members. While getting involved on campus is highly encouraged, it is also important to be safe. Both student leaders and new recruits should have an understanding of hazing. After all, hazing violates both California state law and UCSD policy.  For these reasons, it is important to understand what hazing is, how to be able to identify it when it happens, and understand its consequences.
