UF Anti-Hazing Task Force looks ahead to new semester
You may recall a number of hazing incidents that arose this past spring at the University of Florida. Since then, most of the students who faced hazing charges have avoided criminal convictions as long as they complete a year’s probation and sanctions that include 75 hours of community service. Dr. Bernard Mair is the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Affairs at UF and is also the chair of the university’s Anti-Hazing Task Force. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Steven Gallo spoke with him earlier today about what’s been learned from last spring and what their plans are as we move into a new school year.
