The case study is an examination of “community readiness” for a cohort of U.S. universities participating in a three-year research initiative to develop evidence-based hazing prevention strategies. Drawing on the Community Readiness Model (CRM), this study assessed community readiness, the relative level of acceptance of a program, action, or other form of decision-making that is locality-based (Donnermeyer et al., 1997). More specifically, this research examined and measured the institutional readiness of universities involved in a comprehensive approach to hazing prevention in higher education and deepened understanding about the role of institutional readiness in broadening engagement and ensuring commitment for sustainable hazing prevention outcomes in higher education.
