TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) — In what may be the first position of its kind, an anti-hazing administrator was hired at Florida A&M University.

The new post will be held by Bryan F. Smith.  As a FAMU grad, Smith is familiar with the school’s culture: he earned a master’s degree at the school.

Interim university President Larry Robinson said on Friday that Smith’s job will be to ensure initiatives adopted following the hazing death of a band member will be implemented.

Drum major Robert Champion died in November 2011 after he was beaten aboard a band bus in Orlando.

Smith most recently was executive director and co-founder of Destined for Success Educational Services in Decatur, Ga.

He said his goal will be to change a hazing culture on the Tallahassee campus of the historically-black school.

Smith has a law degree from John Marshall Law School, a master’s in public management from Florida A&M and a bachelor’s in political science from North Carolina A&T State University.
