“Our goal is to rid our campus of hazing and continue our efforts to create a safer environment for our students.” said Robinson.
The jobs that were announced on the University’s website are Special Assistant the the President for Anti-Hazing and the Department of Music Compliance Officer will also be advertised in Diverse Issues in Higher Education and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
The Special Assistant will be responsible for the overall management of the university-wide anti-hazing initiatives in collaboration with the University student judicial system, pursuant to the provisions of the Student Code of Conduct and Due Process Regulations.
The Compliance Officer will be responsible for ensuring the overall compliance of the Department of Music, specifically bands and ensembles with university policies and procedures and the Department of Music guidelines specified in approved handbooks.
The new searches were initiated just two weeks after FAMU began a nationwide search for a new Director of Marching and Pep Bands.
“Our goal is to rid our campus of hazing and continue our efforts to create a safer environment for our students.” says FAMU Interim President Larry Robinson.
All three positions will play leading roles in implementing new policies and procedures that are critical to the future of the Marching “100,” which has been suspended for the 2012-13 academic year. Robinson says the goal is to have all three positions filled by the end of the fall 2012 semester.
