All acts of abusive affiliation by any individual student or college registered student club or organization and any of its members or alumni are prohibited. Students are entitled to be treated with consideration and respect, and no individual may perform an act that is likely to cause physical or psychological harm or social ostracism to any other person within the college community. Accordingly, any such behavior is expressly forbidden as abusive affiliation when related to the admission, initiation, pledging, joining, or any other group-affiliation activity.
Any student or organization found to be involved in any abusive affiliation activity will face conduct action and will likely be subjected to expulsion from the college. Violation of this policy exists irrespective of the perceived voluntary or consensual participation in the abusive affiliation activity by the person being abused.
