Moderator: Many impressive individuals (deans and advisers) within the Association of Fraternity Advisers have worked on a Hazing Taskforce and several past Hazing Prevention conferences. I have no doubt the AFA is working hard to help its members behind the scenes. But the Rider case calls for strong commentary and even some adviser guidance from the AFA.

The less-effective AFA message follows below — Respectfully, HN
