Population-Level Prevention

Population-level prevention is a method of prevention that leverages students' social networks to produce significant improvement in alcohol-related perception and behaviors that inspire social and cultural change. The University is administering AlcoholEdu for College to our entire first year student population with the goal of not only changing individual students' knowledge and behavior but hope to change the culture of drinking on our campus. It is hoped that this will create a community with a common educational experience that will foster the development of a campus culture that supports healthy decision-making and increases the students' abilities to take care of each other in risky social settings.

Student Affairs has begun a three-year pilot study which will evaluate the efficiency of this program as educational tool. The following links are the results of student survey results of the first and second year of this project.
