The Importance of an Interdisciplinary Approach to Hazing Prevention/Intervention

A Webinar By: Tracy Maxwell


Research shows that hazing occurs in a wide-range of organizations, across all school levels and even in other parts of society, including workplaces. If we are to make progress on this complex problem, it is crucial that we take an interdisciplinary approach. Task forces should include representation from across disciplines and roles, they should include administrators, faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members. Policies must be consistently communicated and enforced. Tracy will explain the three C’s of effective intervention and discuss the role that each of us can play in addressing hazing no matter what our position.


  • Know the importance of an interdisciplinary approach
  • Understand the three C’s of intervention
  • Be able to identify important stakeholders, partners and constituencies
