National Hazing Prevention Week
National Hazing Prevention Week (NHPW) was started by HazingPrevention.Org (HPO), an organization aimed at bringing awareness to hazing within high schools and colleges as well as empowering students and professionals to actively work to prevent hazing. National Hazing Prevention Week occurs annually during the last week of September. This week provides schools and universities with the opportunity to host programs, workshops, and forums, to help bring awareness to hazing.
Here at Georgia Tech, Fraternity and Sorority Life annually participates in National Hazing Prevention Week with a weeklong of intentional programming and events. This year, NHPW will be happening September 23-27, 2019.
We know that Parents and guardians are an important part of helping end the cycle of hazing. This year, Fraternity and Sorority Life wants to make sure that you feel equipped with the tools and resources to help us address hazing.
Parent and Family Programs along with Fraternity and Sorority Life would like to invite you to participate in the first installment of Parent and Family Programs Webinars with, Hazing Prevention Webinar September 25 at 12:15 p.m. via Georgia Tech Parent & Family Programs Facebook.
We invite parents and families to enjoy lunch while participating in a 45-minute webinar where we will discuss signs of hazing, ways to report hazing, and how to discuss hazing with your student. We hope that parents and families leave the webinar more informed and confident in addressing issues of hazing.
