SRU Good News for March 25, 2010


SRU's Brian Crow appears in Family Circle magazine


When Family Circle magazine needed an expert source for an article about preventing teen hazing, it turned to Brian Crow, a Slippery Rock University associate professor of sport management.
            Family Circle quoted Crow in its April edition in a story titled "The Truth About High School Hazing." Reporter Sarah Mahoney focused on teenage girls and used Crow to counter the myth that hazing is OK if someone agrees to it.
            Crow, who has studied hazing on athletic teams, told Family Circle, "In states that have anti-hazing laws, a child's willingness to be hazed is no justification."
            Coaches, teachers or other students should attempt to intervene and stop incidents before problems start. Teachers should explain that while they know not all hazing is terrible, seemingly harmless rites could escalate without warning.
             Crow, who joined SRU in 2006, authored three textbook chapters and two law review articles about hazing in athletics. He has given more than 45 presentations on his research in an attempt to prevent hazing.
