Central State University is committed to promoting a safe and healthy campus environment, and the University has a zero-tolerance policy for hazing in any form. Members of the campus community have the right to be free from all forms of hazing.
Collin's Law is Ohio's Anti Hazing Act, which was signed into law in July 2021 to enact changes intended to end hazing and cultural issues that enable hazing to persist.
Collin's Law includes but is not limited to the following:
- Expands the definition of hazing and specifies that hazing may include “coercing another to consume alcohol or a drug of abuse."
- Increases the penalty for hazing to a second-degree misdemeanor.
- Expands the list of officials required to report hazing.
- Widens the scope of those who can be punished for participating in or permitting hazing. (A violation that results in serious harm is a third-degree felony.)
- Requires that those aware of hazing report it to authorities, with penalties up to a first-degree misdemeanor for failing to do so.
- Requires the Ohio Department of Higher Education to implement a statewide anti-hazing plan.
- Requires staff and volunteers at colleges and universities to undergo training on hazing awareness and prevention.
