This study looks at how students affiliated with fraternities/sororities and administrators who work with these students define hazing at two institutions of higher education. These personal definitions are compared to institutional definitions and are examined using Bolman and Deal’s (2017) four-frame model: the Human Resource Frame, the Political Frame, the Structural Frame, and the Symbolic Frame. This examination allows for an understanding of what frames are naturally used to define hazing and where areas for improvement may lie in terms of making changes to existing institutional polices and incorporating additional frames to better understand hazing and create effective hazing definitions (Bolman & Deal, 2017).
