Seriously: Ammons Vows to Restore Image of FAMU (Video)
The president of Florida A&M University says he wants to make the school a national leader on how to deal with the problem of hazing.
Today James Ammons told the FAMU Board of Trustees he is taking a stand against hazing and will work to change the campus so that respect and dignity are the most important values at the school.
The board met to consider Ammons’ plan to eliminate a culture of hazing on campus. The plan results from the hazing-related death of band member Robert Champion last November.
The proposal includes stricter oversight of the marching band, the Music Department and band members.
