Condoning Drug Education Programs at Colleges and Universities.
Kaczynski, Daniel J.
This report presents the evaluation results gathered from a 2-year study of a drug prevention program involving a consortia of nine colleges and universities located in Alabama and Florida. The consortia effort was intended to: (1) strengthen their respective drug prevention activities; (2) develop policies governing alcohol and drugs; (3) implement institution-wide drug education and prevention programs; and (4) establish a network of prevention specialists on each campus with plans for continuity. Although many of the goals were achieved, formal institutionalization of the consortia remains doubtful, and cessation of federal funding has caused organizational leadership to become questionable. Several of the consortia institutions have demonstrated significant staff reassignments and turnover during the grant period. While a support network of contacts has been provided to the consortia members, the lack of consistent support and commitment makes it unlikely that staff will be able to firmly establish strong consortia leadership.
