Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- Greek organizations are required to be there, but organizers say all students should consider attending an event designed to eliminate hazing at West Virginia University.

Rasheed-Ali Cromwell will give a lecture on hazing Sunday at Ming Hsieh Hall to students involved in various organizations, including athletics.

He is a Washington, D.C., lawyer who has studied the initiation tactics of fraternities and sororities.

He's also writing a book called, "Endangered Species: The Plight of African-American Fraternities and Sororities."

Student organization coordinator Jacque Dooley says the training session is designed to end hazing and make students aware of the harm it can have on individuals and the campus climate.
