ECU Greek Life hosts national hazing expert March 20

East Carolina University’s Department of Greek Life and the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities will host Dr. Gentry McCreary at 8 p.m. March 20 in Wright Auditorium.

McCreary, CEO and managing partner of Dyad Strategies, will present “The Five Great Hazing Myths.” He will share information from his award-winning research that examines the psychology of hazing, the moral development of college students and the roots of fraternal brotherhood and sisterhood.

This is a free, non-ticketed event, which is open to the campus community and the general public.

In addition to the keynote address, McCreary will spend three days on ECU’s campus providing consultative services and information to individual Greek chapters. All chapters at ECU have received the invitation to participate in a consultation with McCreary.

There are 39 chapters with more than 3,000 students in ECU’s Greek Life community.

“Dr. McCreary and Dyad Strategies are among the national leaders in providing assessment of campus cultures associated with hazing and assisting these organizations with programmatic and intervention strategies to address hazing,” said John Mountz, ECU director of Greek Life. “These types of trainings and direct consultations empower students to better understand the topic and conversations surrounding hazing and helps drive strategies to change or improve the existing culture.”
