Program 2

Novak Institute for Hazing Prevention

The Novak Institute for Hazing Prevention (formerly the Interdisciplinary Institute for Hazing Prevention) is a signature
program offered by HazingPrevention.Org (HPO). Consistent with the HPO mission and vision, the institute is
designed to emphasize prevention strategies that are intended to decrease risk
and harm associated with hazing by seeing the real problem, as well as
identifying contributing risk and reduction factors. The Novak Institute utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to
engage participants in identifying the complexity of the hazing phenomenon.
HPO’s commitment is to provide an institute that is interdisciplinary, limited
in size to provide a high quality learning environment, and facilitated by the
national experts who serve as our faculty. The interdisciplinary nature of this
experience makes it worthwhile. Imagine; inter/national fraternal executives,
campus as well as community police officials, fraternity and sorority
professionals, student conduct administrators, researchers, advisors,
consultants, lawyers, senior student affairs professionals and STUDENTS coming
together to advance the prevention of hazing!

For the past
three years we have brought together dynamic groups of students and professionals
and provided them the opportunity to have hope that we can change cultures and
that we have the capacity to prevent hazing. To this end, the Institute focuses
on prevention of hazing as opposed to response. The curriculum is based on the
Higher Education Center’s violence prevention framework, which includes (1) a
set of principles and (2) a systematic (aka strategic) planning process. The
Center’s framework is informed by a public health approach.  The strategic planning process includes
starting with a clear definition of the problem and its contributing factors
(aka risk and protective factors), articulating what needs to change, looking
at research about what works to make that change, creating effective programs
and policies that carry out those change goals, etc.
 

The Novak Institute is a highly focused learning experience
for people concerned about preventing hazing. The curriculum of the Novak Institute has been intentionally
designed to facilitate individual learning for the purpose of community
change. The institute utilizes
multiple learning strategies:

•      Feature
presentations

•      Small
group discussion

•      Curricular
pathways based on your role and orientation in the community

•      Individual
or tem coaching/advising

Funding Needs

HazingPrevention.Org continues to receive more and more media requests, calls from parents and hazing victims of all ages and requests from schools that are struggling with this issue. In order to keep up with the growing demand for resources and education, we need funding for curriculum development and additional staffing. Our current budget calls for a 33% increase over last year's budget in order to meet the needs of our clients.

STATEMENT FROM THE Executive Director

"HazingPrevention.Org is a national organization dedicated to empowering people to prevent hazing, by providing education and resources, and building partnerships with others. Major initiatives of the organization include National Hazing Prevention Week™, the Novak Institute for Hazing Prevention™, and educational webinars and courses that touch the lives of thousands of individuals, organizations, campuses and communities.

HazingPrevention.Org started in 2007 when founder Tracy Maxwell decided to do something that would turn the conversation about hazing from how to punish those who haze to how to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Our website is your gateway to all of the programs, resources and services HazingPrevention.Org (HPO) has developed in pursuit of our mission to empower people to prevent hazing. I invite you to learn more about us by reading our 2014-2017 Strategic Plan.

On behalf of the HPO Board of Directors, staff and our incredible volunteers throughout North America, I invite you to sign up for our monthly newsletter, follow us on social media, and visit our website often to keep pace with everything our growing organization can provide to help you prevent hazing.

Best wishes,

Emily N. Pualwan, Executive Director"
