Reducing Alcohol Problems on Campus: A Guide to Planning and Evaluation.
Saltz, Robert F.; DeJong, William
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism established the Task Force of the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to review and report on the existing research on college student drinking, including the evaluation of camps and community policies, prevention programs, and early intervention strategies. This review has been published as A Call to Action: Changing the Culture of Drinking at U.S. Colleges. This brief guide is intended to provide some direction as to how this research can be incorporated most effectively into an explicit planning process to maximize the impact of any prevention strategy and to monitor any interventions implementation and local impact. The guide is organized around the five basic steps of effective prevention planning and evaluation: (1) identifying specific goals and objectives; (2) reviewing the evaluation research; (3) outlining how the intervention will work; (4) creating and executing a data collection plan; and (5) providing feedback to the intervention program. The guide concludes with references that relate to topics of alcohol-related problems among college students. (Contains 29 references.) (SLD)
