Fox News features Allan hazing research
In an article about the impacts of hazing on colleges and universities, Fox News interviewed Elizabeth Allan, professor of higher education, about her research about hazing. Allan found in a 2008 study that about 55% of college students involved in campus clubs and organizations reported some form of hazing. By 2018, Allan found that number had dropped to about 26% at seven schools that are a part of the Hazing Prevention Consortium, a group of schools that have committed to stopping hazing. “We looked at a wide range of clubs, teams and organizations. The students were reporting hazing in performing arts groups, marching bands, a cappella groups, honor societies. It really varied,” Allan said. Yahoo News, WGMD-FM (Rehoboth Beach, Delaware), WCSI-AM (Columbus, Indiana) and other national outlets shared the Fox News report.
