University of Northwestern Ohio

Support and Resources

If you have experienced, or think you have experienced hazing in some form, help is available. Talking to someone is a good start in taking that first step forward. The organizations, people, and agencies listed below can provide the resources, advocacy, and support you may need.

Types of Support

If you choose to speak to someone about hazing, there are two types of resources available: confidential and other.

What Does this Mean?

Confidential resources, like counseling or victim advocacy services, are not required to report the incident to the police or the University. There are legal protections for the discussions you have with confidential resources. Other resources, such as professors, academic advisors, coaches, and supervisors, are legally obligated to report incidents of hazing to UNOH. Neither type of resource is better than the other. There is no right or wrong way to handle this.

Please remember, all members of the University’s community (with the exception of Confidential Resources) are expected to report hazing.
