Hazing Policy

Posted By NECC Editor On October 26, 2010 @ 1:15 pm In | Comments Disabled

Massachusetts General Laws state that, “… Whoever is a principal organizer or participant in the crime of hazing (initiation into a student organization) shall be punished by a fine of not more than three thousand dollars or by imprisonment in a house of correction for not more than one year, or both. Whoever knows that another person is the victim of hazing and is at the scene of such crime shall report it as soon as reasonably practicable to an appropriate law enforcement official if it can be done without peril to one’s self or others. Whoever fails to report such crime shall be punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars.”

Northern Essex policy states that: “Any academic or administrative official of the college, any member of the faculty, or any student of the college may file charges against any student for misconduct. The charges shall be filed in writing to the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. In extraordinary circumstances as determined by the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, she/he may suspend the student charged pending further consideration of the case.”
