News Center Maine reports on UMaine Greek life efforts to prevent hazing
News Center Maine reported on the efforts of University of Maine’s Fraternity and Sorority Life to prevent hazing. Jennifer Desmond, assistant director for community life, said that they teach students in fraternities and sororities to identify what hazing is and how to stop it. “We view hazing as, even if somebody is forcing you to wear a pin, and asking you about that pin, and you have to have a required response, that’s hazing. Even though it might not seem [like it], you know. It doesn’t involve alcohol, or it doesn’t involve some of the really harmful things we think about in hazing. It’s still hazing, and that behavior can lead to more harmful versions of hazing,” Desmond said. MSN shared the News Center Maine report.
