FAMU Puts in New Rules in Wake of Hazing Death
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida A&M University wants students, faculty and those doing business with the school to report hazing incidents.
University trustees adopted a new rule on Thursday that requires those attending, visiting or working at the school to turn over to police within 24 hours any reports of hazing.
It's just one step that the university has taken in the wake of the hazing-related death of drum major Robert Champion.
FAMU President James Ammons has ordered that the police department tell him any time there are allegations of hazing. He also wants information on crimes that occur on campus as well as off-campus crimes involving FAMU students or employees.
Last week two professors were put on paid leave following allegations they were present while band fraternity pledges were hazed.
