Presenter: Gentry McCreary, Ph.D – Associate Dean of Students and Adjunct Professor of Educational Research and Advanced Studies – University of West Florida

We have always been told that the first step in developing a solution is to first fully understand the problem. As a profession, we have generally approached hazing prevention as a "one size fits all" approach, without fully understanding the nuances of the problem. Research by Cimino (2011) proposed that all groups engage in some form of newcomer hazing, and that the hazing is done for one of three reasons: to build group solidarity, to build group loyalty, and to perpetuate social dominance and group hierarchy. Using Cimino's study as a framework, this session will unveil the presenter's research aimed at quantitatively measuring these three hazing rationale within the fraternity context and better understanding the relationship between hazing rationale, hazing behaviors, and a variety of other constructs related to the fraternity experience.
