Anti-Hazing Policy

Gamma Sigma Sigma will not tolerate hazing and any member found to be in violation of out hazing policy will immediately be expelled from the sorority.

Gamma Sigma Sigma Sorority is resolved that hazing and alcohol abuse among its membership have no part in chapter operations.  Adherence to these policies is not only mandatory, but is the personal responsibility of every member and chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma. The Sorority will hold its chapters and individual members accountable to all policies and procedures established by the National Board of Directors.  Hazing, underage and/or binge drinking and other drug use in chapters have significant consequences for all of us. Sorority reputation is devastated, parents are afraid for their children and legal actions implicate the local chapter, university and National Organization.  When a member or chapter decides to commit an unlawful act, it affects us all.

Gamma Sigma Sigma is a proud sponsor of the Anti-Hazing Hotline. The hotline provides and anonymous telephone line for anyone to report a suspected or recent hazing incident, accepting calls 24/7.

 

Hazing has no place in Gamma Sigma Sigma and the abuse of others is a direct contradiction to the ideals of the sorority. For chapters that disregard the national alcohol or hazing policies, they will receive a Cease and Desist (C&D) letter and an emergency visit which is used to promote risk reduction and educational program and to change behaviors. In addition, chapters found in violation of national policies will face disciplinary sanctions. The status of those chapters with repeated violations will be reviewed regularly by the National Board of Directors. If it is determined that progress is not being made or that members fail to uphold our standards, the chapter charter will be inactivated.
