This report provides a summary of Service Members SMs identification of hazing behaviors. Data were collected from a survey administered during various human relations specialists training courses at the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute DEOMI. Overall findings revealed that one-third of SMs were unable to correctly identify incidents of hazing despite being provided their Services definition of hazing and a study guide explaining the types and demands of hazing. These results provide areas of improvement, which can guide future training and education efforts on hazing both at DEOMI as well as in the Field, Fleet, and Wing.
