When Students Drink Too Much: Whose Problem Is It Anyway?
Foster, Holly A.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v20 n3 p18-25 Sep 2017
This case is for use in graduate courses in student affairs and higher education administration. It presents the challenges faced by student affairs professionals at the University of Virginia where some students participate in an annual high-risk drinking practice that has resulted in injuries and even death. Student affairs professionals at the university have attempted to address this dangerous practice for almost 20 years with minimal success. This case highlights the complex issues that administrators must often face as well as provides students the opportunity to evaluate the complex issues from the perspectives of the various constituencies involved.
