Members of the state Board of Governors were told Wednesday that
it's one of the steps being taken in the wake of the death of drum
major Robert Champion.

Champion died after a hazing ritual last
November and his death has triggered several investigations.
The board - which oversees the state's 11 universities - has
launched its own investigation into whether FAMU officials ignored
past warnings about hazing.

But members of the board did not criticize or question the
actions taken so far by FAMU President James Ammons or the FAMU
Board of Trustees in the wake of Champion's death. One board member
called FAMU's response admirable.
