This important resource explores the political, cultural, and historical context of hazing at colleges and universities, and also highlights the diverse settings where hazing occurs on campus. Grounded in empirical practice and research, chapter authors discuss current hazing policies and implications to student success while challenging dangerous and harmful hazing habits. Unpacking common myths, this volume helps higher education and student affairs practitioners understand the implications of policy while providing best practices and practical tools for fostering safe and productive organizations on campus. Critical Perspectives on Hazing in Colleges and Universities helps readers continue to educate themselves in prevention while advocating for the lives of people affected by or vulnerable to hazing.
"Critical Perspectives on Hazing in Colleges and Universities breaks the silence surrounding hazing in an array of postsecondary subcultures. This book provides essential insight into what is happening on campuses, why, and how it might be stopped before any more students are harmed."
