WVII covers hazing prevention research forum

WVII (Channel 7) reported on a two-day meeting held at the University of Maine to discuss hazing prevention research. The event was the culmination of the Hazing Prevention Consortium, a three-year research-to-practice initiative led by Elizabeth Allan, a professor of higher education at UMaine. In addition to UMaine, the meeting included representatives from seven other universities who reported on results of evaluation projects related to hazing prevention as well as progress they’ve made in ending hazing on their campuses. “What we are doing is about shifting culture and so we are really at the cutting edge,” Allan said. “These campuses that have committed to this work are really path breaking.”
