NHPW Series- Hazing in Predominantly African American Organizations
September 13, 2012 at 2PM EST
Were the “good old days” really that good? As recent events demonstrate, within African American student communities, hazing is a phenomenon that continues to undermine the organization’s structures and cultural relevance of student clubs and organizations. This webinar discusses how practitioners should understand the hazing dynamic of African American organizations through the lens of a student’s moral obligation to confront and eliminate hazing from their organization.
Participants will leave with and understanding of:
1. The implications of hazing on the organizational dynamics of African American student groups
2. Skills to address hazing behaviors verse consequences
3. The dynamics that allow hazing to continue in student communities.
