Dillard president cites hazing research in Times-Picayune column

Dillard University President Walter Kimbrough’s column in The Times-Picayune about ending hazing referenced a 2008 University of Maine study by Elizabeth Allan and Mary Madden that found 47 percent of students entering college had already experienced hazing. Kimbrough advocated creating a broad coalition in middle schools to provide intensive hazing education, “just like we are doing with bullying. Hazing is bullying’s close cousin.”
