FSU Hosts Forum on Hazing with 4 Other UNC-System HBCUs
Fayetteville State University (FSU) will be one of five campuses hosting a video conference titled “Hazing Hurts”. The forum will be held January 23, 2013, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Telecommunications Building on the FSU campus. The public is invited.
Serving as moderator for the FSU forum will be Dr. Jason DeSousa, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Retention at FSU. DeSousa is also co-author of a report titled Hazing and Pledging in African American Fraternities and Sororities. Panelists for the forum will be students and administrators from FSU, Elizabeth City State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Winston-Salem State University, and North Carolina Central University School of Law. Through the TALIAS program sponsored by NCCU, the campuses will use high definition video conferencing to allow claimants to participate in the forum at each of the schools.
The forum will focus on the following topics:
· What constitutes hazing?
· What are the consequences of hazing?
· What are alternatives to hazing?
· What can I do if I am hazed?
The series is sponsored by the FSU Hazing Prevention Task Force which consists of the Student Government Association, Office of Legal Affairs, Dean of Students, National Pan Hellenic Council, Marching Bronco Express Band, Department of Athletics, and the Office of Civic Engagement and Service Learning.
FSU is the second-oldest public institution in North Carolina. A member of the University of North Carolina System, FSU has nearly 6,000 students and offers degrees in more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
