The South Atlantic Region

Joins the National Stance Against Hazing !!! 

 

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated has a Zero Tolerance No-Hazing Policy in place and continues to enforce its tenets. The sorority is opposed to any acts of harassment or violence during the Membership Intake Program or in the conduct of sorority business. As a result, the sorority assumes an affirmative action program that integrates the basic tenets of the individual value and the worth of each member into every facet of sorority life.

 

Regularly, and on a consistent basis, it is incumbent upon us to review those policies to remind each of us of our responsibility to behave in a manner that is within the framework of Delta’s No-Hazing policies and to uphold the law on criminal hazing.

 

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated recognizes its responsibility to protect human dignity and promote positive personal growth. Hazing is strictly prohibited by any member of the sorority.

 

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated defines hazing as an act that threatens the mental, physical, academic health, or safety of an applicant, candidate, pyramid or member through actions or situations that endanger, embarrass, harass, demean or ridicule any person regardless of locations, intent or consent of individuals.
