Greenfield); (4) "How to Design Campus Alcohol, Other Drug and Traffic Safety Criteria" (D.C. Roberts); (5) "Large Scale Efforts for Colleges and Universities" (J.S.

Donovan); (10) "Some Final Considerations" (D.D. Gehring, S.M. Janosik, and S.L. Hatos); and (11) "Safety Belt Programs" (J.K. Wener). The second section, entitled "Resources," contains "hands-on" resource materials in support of each of the topics covered in the first section, including sample fact sheets, handouts, posters, and survey and assessment instruments, that have been tried and found successful on college campuses. An appendix contains a list of resource organizations. (Individual articles contain references.) (PRW)
