This is the first issue of a newsletter for those in Texas higher education who are interested in the prevention of alcohol and other drug abuse within higher education. The lead article, based on an unpublished study, addresses Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, in particular the link between drug and alcohol use and sexual behavior. A section titled "Views" explores the formal meaning of the definition of alcoholism. A two page news section provides short write-ups of events, personalities working in the field, and legislation news. "Intelligence Connections," which will be a regular column on computer data base resources, indicates topics for future columns and reviews some of the most widely known services. A column titled "Research Review" in this issue focuses on genetics and alcoholism. "Curriculum Issues" announces curriculum related changes that were reported at a meeting of the Central Texas Consortium. Two pages are devoted to news about Substance Abuse Specialists in Higher Education (SASHE). "Evaluation Enhancement" contains two articles on evaluation. The following section, which focuses on the Network of Colleges and Universities Committed to the Elimination of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, provides a statement of purpose and a list of network standards. A final column, "Organizational Linkages," provides contacts, addresses, telephone numbers and descriptions for key organizations. (JB)
