Organizational Conduct (Max Gruver Act)
In 2021, the Georgia Legislature passed the Max Gruver Act expanding state-wide hazing definitions, penalties, and protections.
In accordance with the law, the University of West Georgia will publicly disclose student organizations found to be responsible for violations of hazing. The Office of Community Standards will provide regular updates to the campus community about organizations found responsible for hazing misconduct.
Additionally, UWG will strengthen hazing education efforts to continue educating students, faculty, and staff about types of hazing and prevention. More information about the Max Gruver Act can be found here https://www.legis.ga.gov/api/legislation/document/20212022/202145.
