College Alcohol Survey: 1979, 1982, and 1985.
Anderson, David S.; Gadaleto, Angelo F.
Results of the 1979, 1982, and 1985 College Alcohol Survey are presented, along with information about alcohol education materials. The survey assesses collegiate policies and activities regarding alcohol use and abuse, institutional self-reports, treatment and referral services, and prevention and education. The following response rates for questionnaires sent to 330 four-year colleges and universities were obtained: 50 percent for 1979, 71.5 percent for 1982, and 61 percent for 1985. Although no significant changes occurred in the percentage of colleges that permit the consumption of beer (78 percent) and hard liquor (69 percent) on their campuses, a variety of changes have been enacted under which alcohol may be used. Research by 44 percent of the colleges has been conducted on students' drinking behavior as well as students' attitudes about drinking, while student knowledge about drinking has been assessed at 32 percent of the campuses. Virtually all campuses provide assistance to students with a drinking problem at the counseling or health center. Additional findings are presented for each questionnaire item. Information on 32 programs, anti-alcohol abuse activities, and written and audiovisual materials is provided, including a brief description, the cost, and the address of a contact person. (SW)
