An incident is hazing-related if the incident includes any action or situation that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of a student for purposes of initiation or admission into or affiliation with any school-sanctioned organization. "Hazing" includes, but is not limited to: (a) pressuring, coercing, or forcing a student to participate in illegal or dangerous behavior, or (b) any brutality of a physical nature, such as whipping, beating, branding, or exposure to the elements.
Note: If the hazing results in another SESIR incident that is Level III or higher, do not code the incident as Hazing. Instead, the incident should be coded as the relevant SESIR incident and as hazing-related.
