HPC Process

Hazing Prevention Consortium

The HPC engages campuses in a progression of guided activities over three years that build upon prevention science and the Strategic Prevention Framework. HPC activities progress as follows:

Year One 

StopHazing conducts a rigorous assessment of campus culture and hazing climate and coaches campuses to build capacity and cultural competence for hazing prevention and coalition of cross- campus stakeholders to lead hazing prevention efforts

Year Two

Campuses build on Year One assessment and capacity building to maintain strong coalitions to plan, pilot, and evaluate hazing prevention strategies to reach key stakeholders.

Year Three

Campuses continue to sustain their coalitions and use evidence from Year Two to refine prevention strategies and evaluation instruments and focus on sustainability of hazing prevention initiatives.

Launch and Annual HPC Summit

New members meet at the beginning of Year One to learn about each other’s campuses and the HPC.  They meet at the close of each year during the Annual HPC Summit in Orono, Maine to compare notes, share lessons learned, and plan for next steps. These meetings generate a close cohort with members who freely consult one another and members of previous cohorts over the course of the project.
