Novak Institute for Hazing Announced by Hazing{

Novak Institute
The fourth annual Novak Institute for Hazing Prevention
will be held on June 8-11 2011 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. The event is a can’t-miss for professionals, volunteers, and undergraduate and graduate students involved in athletics, fraternity/sorority life, risk management, campus/community police, and many other disciplines. Attendees take whey they’ve learned back to their communities to implement an interdisciplinary hazing prevention program, so bringing an interdisciplinary team is becoming more and more popular.

This four-day hands-on experience teaches diverse groups of interdisciplinary participants how to address hazing from a strategic approach that focuses on prevention rather than just response. Nationally recognized faculty teach a prevention framework based on proven principles and grounded in research. This approach is having a growing impact across the country.

Early registration ends May 6 for $650; after this date, the fee increases to $725. The final registration deadline is May 20. Interdisciplinary teams of five or more receive a 10% discount. The student fee is $600.
