Building Long-Term Support for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Programs.
DeJong, William; Davidson, Laurie
This publication describes actions and basic principles that campus-based alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention coordinators can take to develop long-term administrative and financial support for campus AOD programs. The first section covers types of prevention programs that increase the probability of success. These programs include: campus-wide collaboration that involves athletics, health services, student activities, residence life, and campus security; strong administrative commitment; an established long-range plan; objectives tied to the institution's mission; networking outside the college community; building on institutional capacity by training faculty, staff, and students able to continue such activities without additional funding; program accountability; and strategic use of public relations. The second section of the publication suggests ways to identify alternative sources of funding and offers suggestions for grant-writing. Advice on preparing a funding request, on seeking support from the alcohol industry, and on approaching foundations is included. Sources of state and federal prevention funding are listed, as well as a list of additional resources. (CH)
