Washington’s new hazing law provides that hazing awareness and prevention education must be provided to all students, be part of new student orientation programs, and cover:

  • hazing awareness, prevention, and intervention;
  • the signs and dangers of hazing; and
  • institutional prohibition of and policies on hazing.

This law also provides amnesty to anyone who makes a good faith report after witnessing hazing or receiving information that a hazing occurred or will occur, protecting them against sanctions or punishment for related hazing violations.
