"We recognize that this organization has a deep history at Cornell, and I can assure you this step was not taken lightly."

- Senior Director of Media Relations, John Carberry

The above statement was made in the Cornell Daily Sun when hazing violations resulted in the permanent dismissal of a longstanding student organization at Cornell. 

Review the campus and state hazing definitions if you're unclear why any of the violations listed in this section of the website constitute hazing. 

Hazing practices are carefully guarded secrets within organizations.

To overcome secrecy and to help prospective members know about a group’s history of hazing, the university has created the list below of violations by campus organizations and teams.

Additionally, any matter adjudicated under the Campus Code of Conduct by a University Hearing Board, University Review Board, or final level of appeal (if applicable), will produce a redacted public record available for review through the Office of the Judicial Administrator.

A list of the organizations involved in hazing (from Fall 2004 through present) is provided below. Details of the campus hazing violations broken down by academic year in the navigation to the left
