Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention
The U.S. Department of Education's Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention has developed this annotated bibliography to provide those interested in prevention at colleges and universities--and in surrounding communities--with a ready reference of current, important, and available information resources. While alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (AODV) have been a focus at institutions of higher education for over two decades, relatively little research on what works to prevent these problems has been conducted in a systematic manner. However, as this bibliography reflects, much has been published to inform a greater understanding of how AODV problems develop, and to describe promising theories and practices for preventing and reducing those problems. This bibliography represents some important journal articles for advancing prevention at colleges and universities. The core of the Center's approach to prevention is the concept of environmental management, which focuses attention on those strategies that will change the campus and community environment in which students are making decisions about alcohol and other drug use and violence. Therefore, many materials included in this bibliography reflect research findings, programs, and promising practices aimed at shaping the campus culture.
