We will Protect this House: A Warning Against Hazing

Hazing Warning

Creating a Smart, Safe Environment for All






Dear Brother *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|* [ID#:*|ALPHAID|*],

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. does NOT condone hazing! Any member found violating the fraternity anti-hazing policy will be immediately suspended with a recommendation for expulsion. In addition, the fraternity will cooperate with law enforcement to ensure that any person violating the law will be brought to justice. Hazing is Illegal.

Brother *|LNAME|*, if you are participating in or knowingly allow any hazing activity, you do not support the mission, vision or aims of Alpha Phi Alpha and do not deserve the privilege of membership. This is not the Alpha man we envision when reciting “The House of Alpha.” By participating in hazing, you erode the foundation of quality, integrity, honor, and standard for excellence that hundreds of thousands of Alpha men have worked tirelessly to erect.

Alpha men are expected to make sacrifices and take the lead, but only in areas that support the MISSION of this fraternity. Hazing in any manner does not do this. For those who are interested in continuing to support this social scourge (acts of hazing), we ask you to weave this into your listing of Alpha quotes:

“For those who want to be anchors, we are cutting you loose.”
– Mark S. Tillman, 34th General President


If you are found violating our anti-hazing policy, we are cutting you loose. Again, if any MEMBER or CANDIDATE of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., is found to engage in conduct inconsistent with our mission, that individual will be dealt with firmly with proper sanctions and possibly legal action.

In short, if you are among those found causing harm to the brand, image and positive actions of Alpha Phi Alpha, we cannot and will not be able to call or treat you as our brother.
