Tallahassee, Florida-Religious and educational leaders in Tallahassee spoke out Sunday against hazing.

Interim Florida A&M President Doctor Larry Robinson joined Reverend Doctor R.B Holmes Jr. as part of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church's first Anti-Hazing Day.

Robinson says while the University has been in the news lately because of hazing, he believes the University is moving in the right direction.

"We still have some work to do on one front. But on the other hand, It's suggesting that students are beginning to come forward and bring to our attention issues that may potentially constitute hazing,"
says Dr. Larry Robinson, interim president of Florida A &M.

Robinson says the University has a new comprehensive plan to combat hazing.

The plan includes new procedures and guidelines for clubs and organizations, special conditions for its music program and creating new positions such an anti-hazing special assistant to the president.
