Redefining Leadership & Tradition: Creating a Hazing-Free Student Experience


Time: Monday, September 13, 2021 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: Archie Griffin Ballroom, Ohio Union

Dr. Jason Meriwether 

Vice President of Enrollment Management at Humboldt State University and hazing prevention author.

Students, advisors, and university administrators must embrace preventive approaches to anti-hazing education & policies for all students on their campuses. This interactive session will provide your students and leadership team with legally sound practices that protect students and the university while engaging in robust discussion about the impact of “tradition” on hazing and violence on college campuses. Participants will be empowered to challenge physical and mental abuse in the context of hazing situations by examining the value of life versus the need to belong. Recognize the relationship between injuries, psychological abuse, and loss of life associated with common hazing behaviors and the concept of tradition. Learn educative options to combat hazing using peer education & bystander intervention models, and strategies to evaluate traditions to assess risks and hidden harms.
