Virginia Commonwealth University in partnership with the Love Like Adam Foundation are hosting the inaugural Virginia Hazing Prevention Summit.  Taking place on June 4, college and university professionals from across the Commonwealth are invited to Richmond to join for programming and discussions around hazing prevention practices. 

All colleagues and partners dedicated to addressing hazing on college and university campuses are invited to join.  This includes professionals who work with fraternities, sororities, student organizations, club sports, athletics, student conduct, prevention, and wellness.   

The focus of the Summit is prevention education, innovative programs, best practices, and methods for eliminating hazing on our campuses. 

Registration is now open through May 10.  There is no registration fee for the Summit.


Call for Programs

Open now through April 15

Colleagues across the Commonwealth are invited to submit proposals.  We are looking for programs that focus on prevention education for all areas influencing and impacting hazing on college campuses.

Whether the program is broad or specific, all programs must provide participants with the opportunity to engage with each other and to leave with a tangible action item to assist in hazing prevention efforts back at their campus.  Program rooms are designed for group discussion with audio and video capabilities.  

Programs have one hour for content, discussion, and questions with a variety of professionals in attendance. 

Call for Programs will be open through April 15 with notification of acceptance by May 3
