The University of Texas Medical Branch (“UTMB”) is committed to providing a safe educational environment for everyone and does not tolerate hazing by any group or individual affiliated with the University. All UTMB students and organizations will fully comply with state law and institutional policies and regulations associated with the prohibition of hazing.
Hazing in state educational institutions is prohibited under State law. Hazing with or without the consent of a student whether on or off campus is prohibited, and a violation of that prohibition renders both the person inflicting the hazing and the person submitting to the hazing subject to disciplinary action.
In alignment with state law, and to inform students in their choice to join student groups, UTMB publishes and distributes a report of hazing violations and any corresponding disciplinary action.
