TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida A&M University has gathered a panel of outside experts to investigate and recommend ways to end hazing on campus.

FAMU president James Ammons announced the school's new anti-hazing committee on Thursday at a board of trustees meeting.

The seven-member committee includes a former federal judge, a clinical psychologist, two hazing researchers, a former Los Angeles schools superintendent, another university's band leader and a director of a minority-oriented nonprofit.

The historically black public university has been dealing with the recent hazing-related death of drum major Robert Champion and the arrests of FAMU students on charges of hazing other students in the school's famous Marching 100 band.
