Every year, Sigma Alpha Iota supports the efforts of HazingPrevention.org and its National Hazing Prevention Week to ensure the safety of students on campuses nationwide. Each day this week, SAI will present a statement further establishing SAI's policy regarding hazing as stated in its Chapter Procedure Manual:
“Hazing is defined as ‘any action or situation that recklessly or intentionally endangers mental or physical health or any action taken or situation created which produces mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment or ridicule.’ Such activities and situations include road trips, public wearing of apparel which is conspicuous and not normally in good taste, engaging in public stunts, and late work sessions which interfere with scholastic activities and many other inappropriate activities.”
Sigma Alpha Iota, with all members of the Professional Fraternity Association, condemns the hazing of prospective initiates. We condemn the practice of using line names, line numbers, families, family trees, and like practices by Greek Organizations.
Sigma Alpha Iota recognizes and affirms that the pre-initiation period is a time for education
for the candidate, and a time for the promotion of professionalism, ethics, and dignity through exposure to the privileges and responsibilities of membership as exhibited by our college and alumnae chapters.
