Florida A&M University is starting a national search for two new employees who will be part of the school's anti-hazing initiatives.
Former FAMU President James Ammons proposed hiring a special assistant to the president for hazing and a new band compliance officer in the wake of the hazing death of a Marching 100 band member.
Ammons resigned from his job this week as part of the fallout from the death of Robert Champion.
Interim FAMU President Larry Robinson called the hirings a critical component of the university's efforts to battle hazing. He says he hopes both positions will be filled by the end of the year.
FAMU is also looking for a new band director even though the band has been suspended for the upcoming school year.
