A Culturally Appropriate Framework for Educating Collegiate International Students about Alcohol
Esch, Laura; Ubbes, Valerie A.
International Electronic Journal of Health Education, v12 p244-252 2009
International students enrolling in American universities may receive education on alcohol use because alcohol consumption is a key concern across American colleges and universities. However, general alcohol education often overlooks the specific cultural, language, and learning needs of international students. This article reviews one current alcohol education program, AlcoholEdu, on a college campus and uses specific examples from international students and the literature to recommend a culturally appropriate alcohol education framework for international students to assist with social, cultural, and educational adjustments related to the college experience.
