LSUS Hazing Report Form

The elimination of hazing on our campus begins with reporting. We urge you to take a proactive stance against hazing and bring any instance of hazing behavior to our attention by completing this form. Thank you for creating a safe campus environment for our LSUS family. **Note** Complaints can be anonymous but will limit our ability to investigate.

For an immediate response to a dangerous instance of hazing currently underway or anticipated to occur, call LSUS Police at 318-455-5497 or 911.

Hazing refers to an act by an individual or a group that, as an explicit or implicit condition for initiation to, admission into, affiliation with, or continued membership in a group or organization. This includes any reckless act or activity occurring on or off campus, by one person alone or acting with others, directed toward one or more students, that subjects that student(s) to an unreasonable risk, sensation or fear of physical, mental, emotional, and/or academic harm for reasons related to that student's status at the University. The intent of any person engaging in hazing activities or the consent or cooperation of any person who is a victim of hazing does not negate a potential violation of the Code.
