TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida A&M University officials say in a new report that they're making sweeping changes to battle hazing at the school.
FAMU on Wednesday submitted a 27-page response to a blistering report issued late last year that concluded that university officials failed to follow state regulations regarding hazing.
The school's response spells out all the changes, including altering requirements for its famed Marching 100 band and adopting a major anti-hazing plan.
The university also disputed a few facts in the report, contending that its student judicial office did act on hazing cases it received from police.
The Florida Board of Governors - which oversees the state university system - ordered the report following the hazing death of FAMU band drum major Robert Champion 13 months ago.
