National Hazing Prevention Week is an annual week of activities and programs conducted on campuses and within organizations to raise awareness of the problem of hazing. We aim to educate students, staff, faculty, parents and the Lawrence community regarding the issue of hazing, how to recognize it, and how to prevent future acts of hazing.
National Hazing Prevention Week is September 19-23, 2016. To start planning your successful week of events in support of NHPW, visit the National Hazing Prevention Week website!
