As advisors, educators and mentors, faculty and staff help students make wise choices and explore the possible consequences of those choices.
As part of the Wake Forest Community , faculty and staff have a tremendous amount of daily student interaction. Faculty and staff partnership is vital for effective campus-wide hazing prevention efforts. Whether you are advising a student organization, teaching a class, coaching a team or walking through campus, it is important to know the warning signs of hazing and how to report a hazing incident.
All members of the Wake Forest community serve as active bystanders to create a community without hazing. Being an active bystander means becoming educated about what hazing is and the detrimental effects it has on those being hazed. Being an active bystander also means knowing how to report hazing, supporting students who may have been hazed and educating members of the campus community who may still believe hazing is acceptable.
