State Board of Governor's Insist FAMU Updates
Published January 18th, 2013
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Florida A&M University must file regular updates to the board that governs the state's universities, detailing how it is improving practices and taking steps to meet recommendations from a blistering inspector general's report.
The report was released last month and says university officials failed to follow state laws and regulations on hazing in the years leading up to the death of a FAMU drum major.
State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan said Wednesday that FAMU officials must pull recommendations from the Board of Governors' inspector general's report and other reports that examined the school's finances and accreditation standards.
Drum major Robert Champion died in November 2011 after he was hazed on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel.
FAMU officials say they have already made sweeping changes since Champion's death.
