TIME quotes Allan in report on fraternity hazing

TIME magazine spoke with Elizabeth Allan, a professor of higher education at the University of Maine and director of the National Hazing Prevention Consortium, for the article, “4 ways to crack down on hazing at fraternities.” Allan said schools should focus resources and funding on hazing prevention methods that engage the entire college community, from students to faculty to alumni. “We’ve typically seen that responses to hazing are reactionary,” she said. “It would be really impressive to see a plan that was comprehensive in nature, research-informed and sustainable.” Allan wants universities to be more proactive about providing mandatory trainings on hazing, including orientation sessions, and be more transparent by consistently collecting and reporting data about how they respond to hazing, the article states.
