TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The findings from a yearlong investigation show that Florida A&M University officials failed to follow state laws and regulations on hazing.

A 32-page report released Friday concludes that the school lacked internal controls to prevent or detect hazing.

The report comes from the Florida Board of Governors, which oversees the state university system. It ordered the investigation after the death of FAMU band drum major Robert Champion 13 months ago.

Champion, a Southwest DeKalb High School graduate, died after he was beaten by fellow members of FAMU's famed Marching 100 during a hazing ritual aboard a charter bus.

The report comes the same month that SACS placed the school on probation for 12 months. The university has one year to prove it is turning itself around or could have its accreditation revoked.
