FAMU taking action to stop hazing

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- Florida A&M University says it is making changes in an effort to curb hazing in the wake of the death of hazing victim Robert Champion.

In a 27-page response to a state investigative report, submitted Wednesday, FAMU detailed how administrators have addressed hazing on campus, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported.

Champion's 2011 death in Orlando prompted the Board of Governors of the State University System to investigate FAMU's handling of hazing on campus.

"Our response identifies instances in which we concur with findings and recommendations in the preliminary report," FAMU's interim president Larry Robinson told the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday night. "We appreciate also the opportunity to discuss actions taken by the university during the past year."

"Going forward," Robinson said last week, "we shall continue working together in good faith with the Chancellor and entire State University System in our united effort to forever eradicate criminal hazing from our universities."
