Colleges and universities face significant challenges related to hazing, primarily concerning student safety and mental health. Hazing often stems from entrenched organizational cultures that resist change. These cultures can be insular and challenging to transform. Additionally, hazing carries serious legal and social consequences, affecting not just the individuals involved but also the institutions and organizations associated with them.

Join us on August 8, 2024 when our presenter will help you develop comprehensive strategies that address the root causes of hazing, so you can promote a culture of respect and inclusivity by identifying gaps in motivation, knowledge and organizational influences. 

Hazing is not restricted to specific types of organizations and can be challenging to identify and confront. A culture of silence often accompanies hazing, where group members feel a need, either explicit or implicit, to keep the behaviors secret. Explore a comprehensive approach to addressing hazing that includes exploring the underlying motivations for hazing, identifying instances of hazing, educating individuals about its harmful effects, implementing holistic interventions, and fostering changes in behavior and culture within organizations.

Topics Covered

Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you: 

  • Gain a greater understanding of the negative consequences of hazing, both for individuals and the wider community, so you can create a change in attitudes towards hazing and a greater willingness to speak out against it.
  • Encourage alternative membership practices that do not involve hazing by exploring the centrality of motivation of lasting organizational change. 
  • Approach challenges using a gap analysis model that will help you to identify which problems need to be addressed, so the solutions designed will impact the problem and not be wasted effort and resources.
  • Become advocates for and understand the nuances of organizational change as it relates to changing hazing behaviors and cultural models and setting.
  • Learn to redefine the solutions commonly taught to higher education professionals to create more effective and evidence based interventions that address the behaviors.


Dr. James McGhee is currently the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Associate Dean of Students at Randolph-Macon College located in Ashland, Virginia.
