ABC-TV Tackles Hazing in All of Its Forms

Brother Bob Kerr Comments on TV Show

"What Would You Do" brings up a topic that circulates on a fairly regular basis. The desensitization of the modern world to the issue of hazing. In a quick poll of my advisors, no one saw the show last night, but everyone now has access through the link I emailed them.

Until we can engage Greek undergraduates and alumni in relevant conversations, bystander behavior will likely be the default behavior. Getting traction for that topice has been next to impossible at my campus. Through constant denial and stiff arming, it took two chapters facing hazing charges before anyone who even agree to the possibility of the existence of hazing.

Take a moment to watch the segment (about 11 minutes): http://abcnews.go.com/whatwouldyoudo
