In 2011, N.C. Central formed a task force to review its guidelines on hazing. A committee was created to develop new guidelines and strategies to ensure the Durham campus is free from hazing and student abuse.
Florida A&M University’s famed Marching 100 band was suspended following the death of a drum major who went through a hazing ritual on a bus last November.
