Ohio University has announced a new, mandatory online hazing prevention training, which will be delivered via email to all Ohio students, faculty and staff this week. The hazing prevention training provides detailed information about hazing, why it is illegal, and what Ohio University students, faculty, and staff can do to stop hazing from occurring on the schools campuses. Users are required to complete quizzes to move on within each of the training modules and complete the training. President Hugh Sherman said “This required training will provide critical information and resources to help our community understand that every member of our University community is responsible for the prevention of hazing.” In 2018 an Ohio University student died as a result of an alleged hazing incident at a fraternity event on the Athens campus. The University has a branch campus in Chillicothe.
