It was the “Lightening in the Bottle” Moment – My Conversation with Chad Ellsworth

Like many college students, Chad joined a fraternity. He experienced the time-honored ritual of hazing. As a college junior, he challenged his fraternity chapter’s culture of hazing and found himself fearing for his safety. This set his future path in motion. Chad left the experience consumed by the idea that organizations can ignite, rather than inhibit, the growth and individual potential of every one of their members. He has used this precarious experience to become a leader in the field of hazing prevention.

In graduate school, Chad conducted and published an original research study on perceptions of hazing, which led him to serve as President of the Board of Directors for the non-profit organization HazingPrevention.Org. In 2007, Chad was named an Anti-Hazing Hero by HazingPrevention.Org, and in 2010, he received one of two awards that year for Outstanding Greek Life Professionals by the Fraternity Information & Programming Group (FIPG).
