Anti-hazing task force to meet at UF Tuesday

By

For the second time, an anti-hazing task force will meet at the University of Florida to look at ways of eliminating the practice.  One fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha has been placed on an “interim suspension” while officials investigate allegations of a hazing incident.  UF spokesperson Janine Sikes says many meetings may have to take place as a result of the charges against the fraternity.

The items to be discussed Tuesday morning starting at 9 am in the President’s Conference Room, 226 Tigert Hall, include:

–an update from the department of student affairs on the Alpha Phi Alpha hazing incident

–a national study , “Hazing in View: College Students at Risk Initial finds from the National Study of Student Hazing”

—review of a CBS news vide, “Hazing: A Dangerous Tradition”.

The allegations at the University of Florida came on the heels of a highly publicized incident involving Florida A&M University, where a student band leader died, apparently from a hazing incident
