UMaine-Led Hazing Study Cited in Alaska Newspaper

An article in the Alaska Dispatch, originally published in the Christian Science Monitor, about hazing at secondary schools and universities becoming more frequent and more harmful than traditional pranks cited a 2008 study led by University of Maine researchers Elizabeth Allan and Mary Madden on behalf of the National Collaborative for Hazing Research and Prevention. The researchers found through a survey of more than 11,000 students that 47 percent reported experiencing a form of hazing or ritualized initiation behavior ranging from embarrassment and humiliation to sexual abuse or criminal conduct.
