Trustees will consider whether to adopt a new rule that requires all students and faculty to report allegations of hazing to police within 24 hours.

FAMU drum major Robert Champion died last November following what police said was hazing while the Marching 100 band was in Orlando.

Since then other incidents have emerged and last week the university placed two professors on paid administrative leave following allegations they were present while band fraternity pledges were hazed.

Trustees will also discuss whether students should be denied admission to functions if they violate dress standards.
