StopHazing Research and Prevention Consulting Services

StopHazing offers consultancies to organizations that are committed to advancing hazing research and prevention. We offer a menu of options, but in general, most consultancies involve a customized selection of services that are designed to meet institutional needs at a given time. The following menu of options is oriented to college and school settings, though our research and prevention approaches can also be applied to work in the military, healthcare, and other institutional settings where hazing occurs.

Please contact Dr. Elizabeth Allan (elizabeth@stophazing.org) for further information on our services and fees.
