FAMU Professors Investigated for Hazing Allegations

Since the death of Florida A&M University student, Robert Champion, the university as well as faculty have been under much scrutiny and sparked many investigations.

While the cases are unrelated, two music faculty members, Diron T. Holloway and Anthony E. Simons III, have been placed on administrative leave. Reasons for leave come after “allegations of misconduct and/or incompetence involving reports and allegations of hazing within the Department of Music and the Marching ‘100,”according to statements released by the university.

While on administrative leave, Holloway and Simmons III will still be on the university’s payroll. Officials have not released information or details regarding the case. However, it is understood the allegations arose from off-campus incidents that occurred in 2010.
