College Alcohol Programs. ERIC Digest.
Eddy, Margot Sanders
The use and abuse of alcohol on college campuses is reviewed briefly and administrative responses are described. Campus initiatives include policy formation and enforcement, treatment programs, and prevention activities. Issues related to institutional liability are outlined, and important factors that bear on policy formation are detailed, such as student attitudes, campus climate, and quality of services to abusers. The Inter-Association Task Force on Alcohol Issues' recommendations for policy regulations are also reviewed, along with recent efforts of Congress, the Federal Government, and the Network of Colleges and Universities Committed to the Elimination of Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
