Hazing Report

On Oct. 19, 2018, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf signed the “Timothy J. Piazza Anti-Hazing Law,” which defines hazing, sets forth different grades of the offense and related penalties, describes institutional enforcement and report requirements and provides a safe harbor provision.

The Student Handbook (2021-22) bans hazing and other offensive, intimidating or dangerous behaviors, and Thiel College takes seriously any allegations and investigates and addresses reports of hazing.

Thiel College has no reported incidents classified as hazing for the reporting period from January 2014 through May 2021.

If you or anyone you know has or is experiencing any form of hazing, please contact Thiel College Public Safety at 724-589-2222 or the anonymous Campus Conduct Hotline at 866-943-5787. The Campus Conduct Hotline is anonymous and handled by an off-campus third party.
