GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The board that governs Florida's universities is discussing a blistering report that contends Florida A&M University officials failed to follow state laws and regulations on hazing in the years leading up to the death of a FAMU drum major.
The Florida Board of Governors is meeting in Gainesville Wednesday to discuss the report issued by its inspector general.
Drum major Robert Champion died in November 2011 after he was hazed on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel.
FAMU officials say they have already made sweeping changes in the aftermath of Champion's death, which also resulted in the retirement of the band director and the resignation of the university president.
