Hazing is a crime in the State of Ohio. As defined by the law, hazing is “doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation into any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person.” Under Ohio law, legal action may be taken against any participant in hazing or against anyone at the College who knew or who reasonably should have known of the hazing and did not make an attempt to prevent it. Every member of the campus community is required to report any incidents of hazing or suspicions of hazing that come to their attention.
Beall Avenue Incident Report
This form is designed to provide College of Wooster students, staff, and faculty with an online method to report specific information related to concerns of harassment and/or discrimination that occur on Beall Avenue or in the surrounding community. Information provided here can help Security and Protective Services as well as local law enforcement develop a profile and/or pattern of occurrence that may help to identify persons or vehicles that are engaged in discriminatory and/or harassing behavior. Submissions can be anonymous.
If your safety is at risk, please call 9-1-1! If possible, please contact Security and Protective Services immediately when the incident occurs at 330-263-2590.
Medical Assistance Amnesty for Alcohol/Drug Concerns
There are times when a student may consume alcohol to a level of extreme intoxication or a student may have a medical emergency following the use of drugs and/or alcohol. Signs of a medical emergency may include but are not limited to vomiting, loss of coordination or balance, loss of consciousness, and/or bouts of unresponsiveness. In those cases, the College considers the safety, health, and well-being of students paramount to documenting students for minor violations of the code of student conduct. To encourage students to seek help for students who are in need of medical assistance, under those circumstances, the College will consider Medical Assistance Amnesty for both the student in need of medical assistance and the student(s) seeking help on behalf of that student.
