Case Western Collegian Wins Anti-Hazing Hero Award

Chapter & Alumni News

Dakota Benjamin (Case Western) was one of several recipients of HazingPrevention.Org’s 2015-2016 Hank Nuwer Anti-Hazing Hero Award. The award recognizes nominated individuals who stood up to hazing in their organizations, at their schools and campuses, and those who have helped educate others about the dangers of hazing. The award is named in honor of Hank Nuwer, a long-time anti-hazing journalist and the author of multiple books and a blog which is hosted on HazingPrevention.Org. A member of the faculty at Franklin College, Professor Nuwer is a former member of the HPO Board of Directors. Dakota was recognized for this national award for confronting his chapter brothers about traditional skits performed by recently initiated members mocking older members. Following his input the chapter agreed that the skits were ultimately pointless and decided to replace the skits with a LEAD session. Since Dakota has changed the culture of the chapter, his his anti-hazing efforts have extended across campus. He looks for ways to challenge other organizations about their practices, and is making the community safer and more respectful as a result.
