Hazing Prevention Academy
The Hazing Prevention Academy (HPA) is a program geared for professionals with a foundational understanding of hazing and its prevention. The HPA currently emphasizes commitment and capacity building for hazing prevention and provides an overview of the data driven Hazing Prevention Framework (HPF). The HPA also provides space and time to foster discussion and Q&A opportunities to explore how participants can influence prevention through research-based, collaborative practice. Several evidence-informed implementation strategies, derived directly from the work of institutions involved in the Hazing Prevention Consortium (HPC), are also discussed.
With an enrollment cap for attendees, participants can expect to gain a deeper understanding of: hazing as a campus-wide climate and culture issue and the intersections of hazing with other campus safety concerns. The HPA is delivered by Dr. Elizabeth Allan, the StopHazing Research Team, past and present HPC member practitioners, and dedicated hazing prevention advocates through a presentation-discussion format in which attendees engage in reflection-based activities, complete self-assessment rubrics given their roles and campuses, and participate in large and small group discussions.
