Hazing is often defined as a specific set of actions, but looking at an isolated behavior ignores some important context. Taking a situational perspective allows us to see a clearer path through discussions about hazing.
Few people invest enough time in this critical-thinking process. As a result, most new initiatives face resistance, never get implemented, fall apart, fail, or drift away into obscurity.
“They have to respect us!” This phrase comes up time after time when we are coaching fraternity/sorority leaders on how to improve their new member education programs. They insist that ‘respect from new members’ be listed as one of the goals. Every time I hear this, the voice of Eric Cartman starts shouting in the back of my head, “Respect My Authoritah!”

Attempting to define hazing by listing behaviors is futile and misguided. Hazing is not a behavior. It cannot be diagnosed simply by comparing observable acts with a list.
