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 by providing the building blocks for proactive hazing prevention. 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. 

Watch for details for the 14th Annual Hazing Prevention Institute in 2022.
