Institutionalizing Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Programs. Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Bulletin Series.
DeJong, William; Moeykens, Barbara A.
This bulletin is intended to help school administrators at the higher education level who are responsible for developing and institutionalizing alcohol and other drug prevention programs. Stressed is the importance of thinking about the program's long-term prospects during early stages of program planning. The information is based on interviews conducted with program coordinators representing both large and small schools across the country. Part 1 describes features of prevention programs that can increase a program's chances of survival after the initial grant period. These include collaboration within the college community, strong commitment from top school administrators, an established long-range plan, objectives tied to the college's mission, networking outside the college community, a focus on building institutional capacity, a system of program accountability, and strategic use of public relations. Part 2 describes possible funding sources to replace initial grant or seed money. (DB)
