A Conversation about Hazing with Tracy Maxwell

Presented by Fraternity and Sorority Life

Tracy believes the most important thing we can do when it comes to hazing is to talk about it. That is why her program focuses on the conversation first. Hazing thrives in secrecy. When it’s ignored or downplayed it just gets stronger. The more we can shine a light on the problem, talk about the confusion surrounding it, and understand the negative impacts on individuals, the more likely we will be to take action when an opportunity arises.
