Dr. Jason L. Meriwether: Will we be successful in stopping hazing on college campuses?
With us today is Dr. Jason L. Meriwether, an experienced higher education leader with over two decades of service to public and private universities, including nine years of HBCU service. We talk to Jason about why he decided to attend the University of Louisville, what was special about Fisk University, where he is seeing success at Humboldt State University, his new book: Dismantling Hazing in Greek Letter Organizations, whether we will be successful in stopping hazing, why students are still unaware of the risks of hazing, a discussion on some hazing cases including Knoll v. Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska (1999) and Kenner v. Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity (2002), the Meriwether educative hazing prevention model, and how can we get students to get over this fear of getting in trouble and instead save a life. We even learn Jason’s favorite places to eat near Humboldt State University. This is a do not miss episode. Please like and share widely! Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34DwYP2haCE
