FAMU president says dismissal possible for faculty involved in hazing



In a response to a Tallahassee Police Department report released Wednesday that said Florida A&M University faculty were involved in a hazing incident in 2010, university President James H. Ammons said FAMU would review the allegations and determine "appropriate action."

"It is extremely disturbing that this incident is alleged to have taken place. Although the Tallahassee Police Department report is dated March 20, 2012, the University was made aware of this report today. The allegations of hazing, which appear to have occurred off-campus in 2010, are currently under further administrative and legal review. The University will take appropriate action against faculty members or students, up to and including dismissals."
