Pacific Northwest media cite Allan study in coverage of hazing case in Washington

KING-TV (Seattle), KGW-TV (Portland, Oregon) and KREM-TV (Spokane, Washington) cited research from professor of higher Elizabeth Allan in coverage of a lawsuit against Seattle Public Schools by a former student who says he endured hazing in high school. The outlets noted an Allan-led study showing that 47% of college students reported being hazed in high school. “It’s important, when you’re thinking of prevention, to realize that students are coming into college very often having experienced hazing, and they may be expecting this kind of behavior in order to be accepted in a club, team or organization,” Allan said.
