Hazing within Black Greek Letter Organizations: Perceptions of BGLO Members and Higher Education Administrators
by Eastlin, Carolyn I., D.E., University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2018, 148; 10814967
Abstract (Summary)

Researchers have noted gender and racial differences regarding hazing practices within Greek-letter organizations (Parks et al., 2014). Black Greek-letter organizations focus on physical hazing practices, while their white counterparts focus on alcohol abuse and consumption (Kimbrough, 2003; Parks et al., 2014). As it pertains to gender, black Greek fraternities are more likely to participate in hazing activities, than black Greek sororities. This research has explored the perceptions of black Greek fraternity members and higher education administrators regarding anti-hazing statues and policies, hazing within black Greek-letter organizations (BGLOs), and its culture. It has been guided by the overarching research question: What are higher education administrators and black Greek fraternity members’ knowledge levels and perceptions regarding anti-hazing laws and BGLO traditions and their effects on the BGF members’ participation?
