Research question“Is hazing still a concern in college marching band?”Hazing can be defined as any situation developed or action taken with an intention tocause harassment, embarrassment and physical or emotional harm to member of a group or team.The purpose of this research is to identify whether students in marching band still facing issuesrelated to hazing. Researcher is interested in understanding the experiences of students withhazing behaviour in collegiate marching band (Jason and Michael, 2015).Due to variousincidents such as Robert champion's deathand drum major of the Florida A&M UniversityMarching 100, the interest of research on these subjects has been developed again. It is essentialto determine possible causes and reasons of hazing in marching band so that effective strategiesfor prevention can be established and implemented to control this issue or problem.2. Theoretical perspectivePsychological perspectivesIn order to understand the reason of hazing and its endurance by individuals, hazing canbe examined with a wide range of psychological perspectives. The theory of severity-attractionstates that the more efforts an individual put in accomplishing a aim, the much desirable the goalbecomes. On the other hand, theory of severity affiliation attraction defines that those peoplewho endure hostile and demanding environments will establish a good relation with others whohave faced related situations (Jason and Michael, 2015).Relations between moral disengagementand hazers have also been determined as a method of trying to state the reason why hazinghappens. According to these various psychological perspectives,authors haverecommended thatpeople who are getting hazed tolerate it due to a powerful desire for the approval and affirmation1
of others to create self-concept of an individual. It is not necessary that hazing may only be acase of immoral character rather it may demonstrate the happening of social communication,situation's definition and utilization of symbols as a way to manipulate definitions of self formembers of a new group. Many research studies related to hazing have focused on differentresults of harassment and embarrassment activities including psychological and physical impactsof the same. Some researchers identified through their investigation that many students toleratehazing due to the desirable process of pledge or initiation.Sociological perspectivesInitiations by different groups have been an essentialcomponent of western culturalexercises since the period of ancient Greeks and is a major as well as continuous research subjectfor social scientists (Jason and Michael, 2015).Hazing has been a critical factor for variousorganizations historically including athletic companies, online communities, education andreligious groups, youth groups such as Boy scouts and future farmer of America as well asmilitary. Hazing behaviour and practices are not restricted to college campuses, it has alsobecame a big issue in the last few years. In educational area, there are two groups which havereceived the most attention related to research affiliated to prevention and investigation onhazing – Greek and Athletic organizations. Various research studies have focused on hazingbehavior in athletics. These investigations concluded that most of the student athletes experienceat least some kind of hazing. The research concluded that 80% of National Collegiate Athleticassociation College Ahletes (NCACA) faced hazing attitude and behavior when they were amember in team.On the other hand, some other investigation determined that athletes experienced hazingeither as the one doing hazing or as one being hazed. Sororities and Fraternities are two groupswho have received the major attention related to hazing. College campuses all around the UnitedStates are home to thousands of Sororities and Fraternities that take part constantly in events thatare essential for the Greek social culture. Since their establishment, Greek organizations havebeen utilizing hazing practices in many rites of passage and initiations. Although, various criticalinitiations rites were found to be against the Greek organization's principles. The main hazingactivities in these bodies were physical maltreatment, sleep deprivation and alcohol abuse.2
