Boston College has suspended its men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs after the school determined that hazing had occurred in both programs. In a statement released by the school Wednesday afternoon, Boston College said the programs have both been placed on indefinite suspension.
“Consistent with University policy, the matter will be investigated by the Office of the Dean of Students and adjudicated fairly and impartially through the student conduct process,” the statement said. “The University does not—and will not—tolerate hazing in any form. During the suspension, all Swimming and Diving student-athletes will continue to have access to academic and medical resources provided to all Boston College student-athletes.”
Both the men’s and women’s programs finished in last place at the 2023 ACC championships. Thirty-one members of BC’s swimming and diving programs were named to the ACC’s All-Academic Team following the 2022-23 season.
BC’s swimming and diving teams were scheduled to hold their annual Maroon vs. Gold meet on Saturday and open their season Oct. 7 at George Washington.
