Relevance of Campus Climate for Alcohol and Other Drug Use among LGBTQ Community College Students: A Statewide Qualitative Assessment

Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v36 n7 p494-503 2012
Literature suggests that individuals who identify as LGBTQ may engage in more alcohol and other drug (AOD) use/abuse than others. Little data is available about these populations on college campuses where AOD use may be seen as part of the general campus climate and culture. This article will describe a qualitative needs assessment conducted on 10 community college campuses in Arizona to determine campus climate for LGBTQ students and perceptions of AOD use rates and correlates. Findings indicate wide variations in campus climate as well as policies, programming, and resources available for LGBTQ students. This needs assessment is part of a five-year project that includes strategic planning based on the needs assessments and beginning implementation of these plans. This article presents the initial findings of this project and recommendations to the field. (Contains 3 notes.)
