Maine Public, WVII interview Allan about hazing research, prevention toolkit

Maine Public and WVII (Channel 7) spoke with Elizabeth Allan, a professor of higher education leadership at the University of Maine, about her hazing research. For more than a decade, Allan and her colleagues have been looking at college hazing, and recently released a paper and toolkit intended to help colleges take steps to prevent it, Maine Public reported. “We do have a long way to go in terms of educating, building awareness and building the skills for students and others in the campus community to recognize signs of hazing when it does occur, so that we can intervene before we get to be dealing with a tragic situation,” Allan said. “There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach,” Allan told WVII. “You really have to look at the individual school or the campus and see where the problems are most evident.”
