Chapter 2, "Changing the Campus Culture," points out that the prevention task is one of dealing with the total campus culture through multiple strategies of policies and programs. Chapter 3, "Building Strong Intervention Into the Campus Community," focuses on meeting the needs of students, faculty, and staff suffering from AOD problems.
