How to Assess Your Hazing Prevention and Response Program
Here’s how the University of Florida successfully applied 32NCSI’s Hazing Assessment Tool.
With about half of college students in fraternities, clubs, teams and other campus organizations reporting they have been hazed, there is a huge need for institutions of higher education to address this issue.
One free and confidential resource designed to help campuses address hazing has just been unveiled by the VTV Family Outreach Foundation. This tool is one of nine assessment tools that are part of VTV’s 32 National Campus Safety Initiative (32 NCSI). All nine tools are designed around industry standards and best practices to help institutions reflect on their own policies and practices to identify institutional strengths and weaknesses.
To help us get a better idea of how to implement 32 NCSI’s hazing assessment process, Campus Safety magazine interviewed University of Florida Division of Student Affairs Associate Vice President and Dean of Students Jen Day Shaw. In this podcast, Dr. Shaw discusses her university’s experience and lessons learned in applying 32NCSI’s Hazing Assessment Tool. She also suggests ways campuses can most effectively use this resource to improve their prevention and response programs.
