Reports of Hazing

On July 6, 2021, Ohio Senate Bill 126 also known as Collin’s Law was signed into law and took effect on October 7, 2021. Collin's Law, Ohio's Anti Hazing Act, enacts a number of changes intended to end hazing and any cultural issues that allow hazing to persist.  In addition to increasing criminal penalties for hazing, Collin’s Law also requires each institution of higher education to post a report of all hazing violations on a publicly accessible website. Below you will find a list of all reported and adjudicated hazing incidents that occurred at the University of Dayton and/or involving a recognized student organization over the past 5 years.
