Reporting Hazing Activity

Hazing is defined as any action taken which produces bodily harm or danger, mental or physical discomfort, embarrassment, harassment, fright, or ridicule. Permission or approval does not make hazing acceptable, legal, or defensible. Once a common tradition, hazing has been banned by all national, local, and international fraternal organizations and institutions of higher education. The University of California, Santa Cruz strictly enforces this policy, and organizations found in violation are subject to immediate suspension of campus recognition.

If you are aware of hazing, please contact either the SOAR Staff at 831-459-2934 or Student Conduct at 831-459-1738 or

Depending on your comfortability and level of concern, you can utilize the following options:

Overview of Services

CAPS provides UCSC students with a wide range of mental health and wellness services. We also provide preventative outreach and consultation services to the UCSC community. Counseling services are available for any registered UCSC student and are confidential. There is no out-of-pocket fee for CAPS services, and you don't need UC SHIP or CruzCare to be seen at CAPS.

CAPS services include groups, workshops, brief individual therapy, Let's Talk drop-in consultations, crisis intervention, referrals, brief couples or family counseling (depending on counselor availability), educational outreach (e.g., through workshops, our newsletter, and social media), and consultation for non-clients (e.g., staff, faculty, family members). CAPS also includes Psychiatry Services (psychotropic medication services), volunteer programs for UCSC students (Peer Education Program and Student Advisory Board), and training for masters- and doctoral-level psychology interns and residents.

The most commonly used service at CAPS is an initial consultation, where we get information about what you need and your history and then make recommendations for next steps.
