Environmental Strategies to Prevent Alcohol Problems on College Campuses. Revised
Stewart, Kathryn
Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation
Alcohol problems on campuses cannot be solved with simple solutions, such as an alcohol awareness campaign. Instead, dangerous college drinking can be prevented with an array of protective measures that deal with alcohol availability, enforcement of existing laws and rules, and changes in how alcohol is promoted, sold and served. Many people, particularly college kids themselves, believe that students are going to drink a lot no matter what. Far from being a statement of fact, however, this belief reflects the popular acceptance of the heavy-drinking environment around so many college campuses. That environment can be changed. This guide describes how environmental management can change campus and community conditions in order. (Contains 2 tables and 11 resources.)
