Florida A&M University's board of trustees will create an independent committee to study hazing.
 
The five-member committee will study hazing at other universities, methods that have helped students resist hazing and how to best govern FAMU's famed Marching 100 band.

  The death of drum major Robert Champion in November and the alleged severe beating of another band member have brought renewed scrutiny to a hazing culture in the band.
 
The committee will not investigate Champion's death or other hazing being investigated by law enforcement.
 
The makeup of the committee and a timeline for its work will be decided over the next 30 days.
 
The board on Monday also approved plans for a campus memorial to Champion and a scholarship bearing his name.
