In Tennessee, hazing means any intentional or reckless act on or off the property of any higher education institution by one (1) student acting alone or with another, which is directed against any other student, that endangers the mental or physical health or safety of that student, or which induces or coerces a student to endanger such student’s mental or physical health or safety. Hazing does not include customary athletic events or similar contests or competition, and is limited to those actions taken and situations created in connection with initiation into or affiliations with any organization.
