Peterson's Drug and Alcohol Programs and Policies at Four-Year Colleges.
Schneider, Janet Carney, Ed.; Porter-Shirley, Bunny, Ed.
This book provides profiles of the drug and alcohol education/prevention programs, support groups and services, special staff, and disciplinary policies of over 900 four-year colleges. A foreword by Lamar Alexander, president of the University of Tennessee and former governor of Tennessee notes signs of lessening drug abuse. An introduction notes the usefulness of the book's information to such groups as prospective students, families, and professionals. The college profiles usually contain general information (such as degrees awarded and accreditation status); and drug and alcohol information (including educational programs, identification of problems, support services, disciplinary actions), and any additional information from the college. A contact person or office for each school is also identified. Appendixes include: Standards of the Network of Colleges and Universities Committed to the Elimination of Drug and Alcohol Abuse; FIPSE Grant Recipients; and Organizations Concerned with Drugs and Alcohol on Campus.
