Allan pens op-ed for MSNBC about hazing

Elizabeth Allan, professor of higher education at the University of Maine College of Education and Human Development, wrote an opinion piece for MSNBC about sexual assault and hazing in light of allegations at Northwestern University. “Hazing prevention is not only about eliminating harm and senseless suffering, but it’s also about gaining something. In the absence of hazing, we can build stronger and healthier groups, more ethical and caring leaders, and more inclusive communities that support student mental health and well-being. The alarming reports of hazing at Northwestern are a clarion call for prevention and, with that, an opportunity for each of us to transform the hazing culture and create safer schools and campuses for our students,” Allan wrote.
