ANTI-HAZING STATEMENT:
Colorado School of Mines believes membership in a collegiate fraternal organization is based on social and moral responsibility, intellectual development, respect for the dignity and personal safety of the individual, and regard for appropriate authority.  Hazing against any member of a fraternal organization - pledged or initiated members - is counterproductive to these stated goals and is in conflict with the true meaning of fraternal life, university rules and regulations and state law.  Therefore, the Colorado School of Mines, is ualterably opposed to and prohibits the act of hazing.
