PennLive cites UMaine study in report on hazing backlash

PennLive cited a 2008 University of Maine study in the article, “Hazing backlash has college fraternities under siege across America.” The study, which was conducted by researchers Elizabeth Allan and Mary Madden, found that 50 percent of fraternity and sorority members surveyed said they had experienced hazing, according to the report. Allan recently updated the study and found 26 percent of students involved in campus organizations, clubs or teams reported experiencing at least one behavior that meets the definition of hazing in order to join or maintain membership in the group.
