Florida A&M University To Require All Students Sign Anti-Hazing Pledge

Want to take classes at Florida A&M University? You'll need to sign this anti-hazing pledge first.

Starting in the spring, students will need to sign an anti-hazing pledge in order to register for classes at FAMU, CNN reports. They'll be agreeing to report any hazing incident within 24 hours and promise they will not participate "in any hazing activities either as a hazer or hazee, on or off campus."

"Everyone on campus needs to be unified in the fight against hazing," Larry Robinson, FAMU's interim president, said in a press release. "We will continue to enact change, positively empower our students and provide resources going forward to ensure that we provide a safer and healthier environment for learning."

FAMU has been dealing with the fallout from the death of drum major Robert Champion during a hazing incident less than a year ago.

Just last week, FAMU suspended the Torque Dance Team following allegations of an off-campus hazing incident.

James Ammons stepped down as FAMU's president over the summer as the university faces a lawsuit over the hazing incident and a number of financial problems.

The University of Montana recently announced a similar move to combat sexual assaults. They're requiring students to pass a rape prevention quiz when they register for classes. UM has been dealing with multiple reports of alleged sexual assaults involving students and members of their football team.
