Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. strictly forbids hazing, which is defined as:
- any act or tradition that endangers the physical, mental or emotional well being of an associate and/or member;
- request, encourages or suggests violation of city, country, state, or national law;
- is mentally or physically degrading;
- or request a personal or mental task of an associate and/or member, regardless of location, intent, or consent of participants.
Hazing corrupts the true meaning of sorority; it negates the values of loyalty, hope, trust, supportive friendships, kindness and compassion of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. Violation of the sorority’s hazing policy by a member or associate will result in a review of associate or membership status and can lead to suspension, withdrawal or disestablishment of the chapter, as well as associate/membership termination, in addition to legal consequences. As an organization at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), we will also comply with the Hazing Policy of University of California, Los Angeles; the policy can be found here.
