Media cite Allan study in coverage of hazing case in Washington

In covering a former student suing Seattle Public Schools for the hazing he enduring in high school, KING-TV (Seattle, Washington), KGW-TV (Portland, Oregon) and KREM-TV (Spokane, Washington) cited research from Elizabeth Allan, professor of higher education at the University of Maine, 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.
