Events

HazingPrevention.Org has two signature events designed to educate and spread the word about the dangers of hazing and the need for prevention.


This annual educational institute focuses on helping professionals put hazing prevention plans in place for schools, universities, teams, clubs and organizations large and small. Now in its 13th year, the 2021 Hazing Prevention Institute will take place virtually starting on June 16 and continue on June 23 and 30. The Institute provides the building blocks for proactive hazing prevention on campus or in an organization. The sessions will focus on helping professionals put hazing prevention plans in place for schools, universities, teams, clubs and organizations of all sizes. The evidence-based curriculum incorporates the latest research in hazing prevention and is taught by experienced, well-known hazing prevention educators. This interdisciplinary, practical prevention approach allows for small group interaction, sharing of best practices, access to prevention leaders, and knowledge and materials to help attendees implement their year-round hazing prevention plan at home.
