ODHE Resources

Acts of hazing have occurred at campuses across the United States for far too long, leaving physical, psychological, and emotional scars that seldom heal quickly. In 2021, Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio General Assembly sent a clear and direct message to everyone affiliated with colleges and universities in our state – taking important steps necessary to bring an end to hazing must be an Ohio priority.  Senate Bill 126, also referred to as Collin’s Law in honor of Collin Wiant, an 18-year-old man who died in a hazing incident in 2018, tasks the Chancellor of Higher Education in the state of Ohio with developing a statewide educational plan for preventing hazing at all of our institutions of higher education.  The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) is assisting colleges and universities around the state of Ohio with implementation of Collin's Law: Ohio's Anti-hazing Act.  They have created a website with information and resources as well.
