Common Issues and Collaborative Solutions: A Comparison of Student Alcohol Use Behaviors at the Community College and 4-Year Institutional Levels
Blowers, Jerimy
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v53 n3 p65 Dec 2009
The literature exploring commonalities between four-year and community college student alcohol use is relatively scarce. A possible reason for this discrepancy is the heavy focus on alcohol issues at university colleges. Coll (1999) presented one of the first brief assessments comparing community and four-year colleges on alcohol use and related consequences. The current investigation replicated this study and once again discovered strong similarities in alcohol behaviors between a community and four-year college residing in the same geographic area. These findings implicate a shared vision between academic institutions in meeting the challenges of substance abuse. The article concludes with expanded discussion of how these collaborations lead to a wider campus-community benefit and the need for colleges in taking a leadership role in achieving this goal.
