The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Air date: November 11, 2015) – In September a group of University of Utah administrators held a discussion titled Hazing: a cross-community discussion. Hazing is a widespread and perennial problem experienced by all types of campus organizations, usually as part of an initiation into a group.

The panel included Lori McDonald, Dean of Students at the University of Utah; Kate Charipar, Assistant Athletics Director for Compliance; Roger Perkins, Director of Veterans Support Center; Marty Liccardo, Health Educator for the Center for Student Wellness; and the panel was moderated by Hailey Ingham, the Vice President of Judicial and Risk Reduction for the Panhellenic Council, at the U of U.
