Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention on College Campuses: Model Programs
US Department of Education
In response to recent alcohol-related tragedies and to ongoing concern about unacceptable levels of alcohol and other drug use on college campuses, Congress authorized the U.S. Department of Education to identify and promote effective campus-based prevention programs. Since 1999, the U.S. Department of Education has awarded approximately $3.5 million to institutions of higher education (IHEs) in recognition of their programs. Through grant competitions held in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007, 34 programs were designated as model programs. Each campus received an award to maintain, improve, or further evaluate its alcohol and other drug prevention efforts, and to disseminate information to other campuses where the programs might be replicated. To be given an award under this program, a campus was required to describe an innovative program or policy that was integrated into an overall comprehensive alcohol and other drug prevention effort. The institution also had to provide evidence that the innovative program or policy was effective in reducing the problems resulting from alcohol or other drug abuse. The award-winning programs and policies are described in this document. Each model program is described as it was at the time of its award. [For the 2002 edition of this report, see ED475072.]
