“Rattlers Strike Out Hazing Seminar”
Keynote Speaker: Gina Lee-Olukoya
Olukoya is the associate dean of Students at the University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign supporting Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, New Student Programs and campus traditions. Her research in the area of hazing involves the study of African-American women involved in historically black Greek-lettered organizations, in addition to how African-American women utilize their sorority experience to negotiate issues of gender and race.
National Hazing Prevention Week is an opportunity for campuses, schools, communities, organizations and individuals to promote the prevention of hazing. Florida A&M University is doing its part to “strike out” this cruel and demeaning ritual.
