    ANTI-HAZING AGREEMENT

    As required by law, Tufts University must issue a copy of MGL c. 269, ss. 17,18, & 19 to all recognized, registered student organizations, both funded and non-funded. Furthermore, your acknowledgement of these regulations also includes the responsibility for notifying all members and potential members of your organization of these statutes. You may do this by reading the statutes at a general meeting of your organization. Additional copies of the statutes are available in the Student Activities/Mayer Campus Center office. Commonwealth of Massachusetts Chapter 536 of the Acts 1985- An Act Prohibiting the Practice of Hazing Legislation enacted into law: The legislature has enacted and the governor has singed into law Chapter 536 Acts of 1985. It makes "hazing" a crime by adding sections 17, 18 and 19 to Chapter 269 Massachusetts General Laws, Crimes Against Public Peace. Effective date is November 26, 1985. The text of the new law is as follows : Section 17. Whoever is a principle organizer or participant in the crime of hazing as defined herein shall be punished by a fine and imprisonment. The term "hazing" as used in this section and in sections 18 and 19, shall mean any conduct or method of initiation whether on public or private property, which willfully or recklessly endangers the physical or mental health of any student or other person. Such conduct shall include whipping, beating, banding, forced calisthenics, exposure to the weather, forced consumption of any food, liquor, beverage, drug or other substance, or any other brutal treatment or forced physical health or safety of any such student or other person to extreme mental stress, including extended deprivation of sleep or rest or extended isolation. Section 18. Whoever knows that another person is the victim of hazing as defined in section 17 and is at the scene of such crime shall, to the extent that such person can do so without danger or peril to himself or herself or others, report such crime to an appropriate law enforcement official as soon as reasonably practicable. Whoever fails to report such crime shall be punished by a fine of not more than five hundred dollars. Section 19. Each secondary school and each public and private school or college shall issue to every group or organization under its authority or operating on or in conjunction with its campus or school, and to every member, plebe, pledge, or applicant for membership in such group or organization, a copy of this section and sections 17 and 18 shall sign an acknowledgement stating that such group, organization or individual has received a copy of said sections 17 and 18. Each secondary school and each public or private school or college shall file, at least annually, a report with the regents of higher education and in the case of secondary schools, the board of education certifying that such institutions have compiled with the provisions of this section and also certifying that said school has adopted a disciplinary policy with regards to the organizers and participants of hazing. The board of regents and, in the case of secondary schools, the board of education shall promulgate regulations governing the content and frequency of such reports and shall forthwith report to the attorney general any such institution which fails to make such report. On December 28, 1987, the Massachusetts legislature modified the law of increased penalties for hazing. Two major changes in the law increase maximum fines and penalties for principal organizers or participants in the crime of hazing: fines increase from "not more than one thousand dollars" to "not more than three thousand dollars", penalties from imprisonment for "not more than one hundred days" to "not more than one year." The University will also take judicial action against any individual(s) or organization(s) where sufficient evidence is found of hazing. Sanctions may include probation fines, suspension, and expulsion.
