At VCU, students are encouraged to join student organizations as a way to meet fellow Rams, explore their interests, and learn new skills. When joining a VCU student organization, students should be welcomed warmly, embraced for who they are, and respected with dignity. No Ram should be demeaned or harmed while trying to find their place with the VCU community.
As a member of the VCU, we watch out for each other’s safety and well-being. This includes recognizing, addressing, and reporting incidents of hazing.
Changing a culture of hazing is a community effort, involving students, faculty, staff, alumni, and families. Together, we can work together to prevent hazing at VCU.
Read the Hazing Prevention and Discipline Policy to be aware of VCU’s expectations.
Know student organizations’ history to ask important questions when joining.
Join our student organizations to connect with peers and engage in your area of interests.
Report any hazing concerns using the Incident Reporting Form
