We've Come a Long Way Baby: Issues and Progress in National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week.
Gonzalez, Gerardo M.
The initial planning of the first National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week is described, the formation of an official student group (BACCHUS) to confront the problem of alcohol abuse is noted, and the history of BACCHUS and of National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week is tracked. The controversy over the involvement of the alcoholic beverage industry in alcohol education is discussed and the challenges of evaluating the effectiveness of alcohol education efforts are considered. Trends in how colleges and universities have dealt with the issue of alcohol abuse over the past 10 years are reviewed. The document concludes by pondering whether BACCHUS and National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week have made a positive contribution to the social and cultural changes that occurred on campuses with regard to drinking, whether industry support has played a role in the prevention of alcohol abuse, and whether the social and cultural changes that have taken place on campuses over the past 10 years would have occurred without the involvement of BACCHUS and National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week activities.
