Hazing Prevention: Initiating a Campus-Wide Culture Change

Last updated June 2, 2015


Many campuses only become aware of hazing issues after a crisis, prompting a reactive approach to fix the problem. Hazing prevention initiatives are not new, but often fall flat because they do not take into account the underlying cultural change that must occur to address this systemic challenge.

Join us to learn how to implement a framework that encompasses a community-based, long-term, comprehensive approach to hazing prevention. Using a case study format, we will highlight an award-winning program that was able to address the roots of hazing activities to effect a campus-wide shift in culture.

Who should attend?

Hazing prevention is not limited to athletics and Greek life. Leaders across campus must be aware of potential risks and ways to mitigate those risks. We encourage your entire cross-campus team to participate in this online training.
