Alcohol on Campus.
ACU-I Bulletin, v52 n5 p15-23 Oct 1984
Alcohol use on campus and strategies colleges are using to educate students about alcohol are considered in two articles. In "When Alternatives Aren't," Ruth Bradford Burnham and Stephen J. Nelson explore the role alcoholic beverages play in young people's social lives and some of the implications for planning social events. They offer a balanced approach to social programming that emphasizes quality and choices and avoids the extremes of "either/or" and "wet/dry." Frances Oblander's article, "A Practice-Oriented Synthesis: Effective Alcohol Education Strategies," reviews the published and fugitive literature on the impact of alcohol education strategies, including evaluation reports from institutions that have established alcohol education programs. Attention is directed to the success of several strategies in altering students' knowledge, attitudes, and behavior related to alcohol use. Information is provided on the results of campus program evaluations, evaluation studies utilizing the classroom environment, and evaluation of voluntary participation alcohol education activities. Appended is a list of agencies and organizations that provide alcohol information and publications. (SW)
