Allan interviewed about New Hampshire hazing laws by News Center Maine

Professor of higher education Elizabeth Allan talked to News Center Maine for a story about a hazing incident that occurred at a fraternity house at the University of New Hampshire in April. The incident led to misdemeanor hazing charges being filed against 46 members of the fraternity, some of whom were also victims. “I think this is something that we really need to work on, is helping everyone understand that there is a broad spectrum of hazing and it can be harmful to everyone involved,” Allan told News Center Maine. “Why wait until we have a tragedy… the laws are intended to send a strong message,” added Allan, who oversees the national organization StopHazing, when asked about strict hazing laws in New Hampshire that allow for hazing victims to be charged.
