Abuse is physical, sexual, emotional, financial or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person.It is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct for a student to retaliate against any individual who makes a good faith report of hazing. However, anonymous reports complicate the University’s ability to take appropriate action against the individuals and/or organization. Hazing is a crime in Alabama (Alabama Code § 16-1-23).Similarly, any University employee who retaliates against an individual who has made a good faith report of hazing will be subject to disciplinary sanctions, up to and including termination. The University of Alabama prohibits hazing, in any form, of any member of the University community. If you have been hazed, know someone who may have been hazed, or have a good faith belief of hazing that is scheduled to occur, take action. Call 911 if there is an immediate threat to your safety or the safety of others.Willow Domestic Violence Center, formerly known as Alternatives for Battered Women, exists to enhance the quality of life and empower individuals affected by, or at risk of, domestic violence.The Agency provides a full continuum of services, including crisis counseling, support groups, court advocacy, a 24/7 hotline, 90-day emergency shelter, and prevention/outreach/education.
