Student leadership by Linda Langford( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Campus-based efforts to reduce alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (aodv) will be more successful if they involve a wide range of stakeholders--including students--who can contribute to the program's design, implementation, and evaluation. Students provide a unique perspective on aodv prevention, and they can also bring a certain authority to the issue: college presidents and other campus administrators pay attention when students speak about aodv issues in a responsible and informed way. Effective prevention requires the development of an evidence-based strategic plan that defines the program's goals and objectives and outlines specific strategies and activities to carry out those aims. Some aodv programs have succeeded in involving students strategically and effectively by reconceptualizing their relationship with other students as an opportunity to mentor the next generation of prevention leaders. The four institutions featured here exemplify this approach to student leadership: the University of Missouri-Columbia, Arizona State University, the University of North Carolina Wilmington (uncw), and the University of Southern Maine (usm). This orientation affects how aodv prevention staff select and train students, the types of work they do, and how their experience is evaluated. (Contains 2 resources and 4 online resources.)

Preventing Violence and Promoting Safety in Higher Education Settings Overview of a Comprehensive Approach by Linda Langford( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutions of higher education (IHEs) are often regarded as sanctuaries, protected environments where young people explore great ideas in a collegial atmosphere and make lifelong friendships. Consequently, incidents of violence on campus are particularly shocking for the extended campus community, evoking questions about whether there is any safe haven. An abundance of evidence indicates that in fact campuses are not immune from such incidents. There are many types of campus violence--including rape, assault, fighting, hazing, dating violence, sexual harassment, hate and bias-related violence, stalking, rioting, disorderly conduct, property crime, and even self-harm and suicide. While grappling with these complex problems is challenging, lessons learned from community-based prevention research point to a set of best practices to guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of interventions to improve campus health and safety. This publication was developed to help campuses prevent violence and promote safety. It reviews the scope of campus violence problems, describes the wide array of factors that cause and contribute to violence, outlines a comprehensive approach to reducing violence and promoting safety on campus, and lists specific recommendations that administrators, students, faculty, staff, and community members can follow to review and improve their policies and strengthen their programs and services.

Strategic Planning for Prevention Professionals on Campus. A Prevention 101 Series Publication by Linda Langford( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The nation's institutions of higher education continue to face serious problems with respect to student alcohol and other drug abuse and violence (AODV). For campus administrators, deciding how to respond effectively means understanding and taking into account both the complexity of these social problems and the individuality of each campus community. There can be no simple answer: Complicated problems require a comprehensive and integrated response, and crafting such a response requires a systematic planning and evaluation process. To support campus leaders addressing AODV problems among their students, this publication describes a strategic planning process for designing, implementing, and refining AODV programs and policies. The planning process described herein is grounded in a prevention approach called "environmental management", which focuses on addressing various factors in the environment that contribute to AODV-related problems. This is not a detailed manual, but a basic introduction to the elements and purposes of sound intervention planning, consistent with the U.S. Department of Education's principles of effectiveness for prevention programs. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure and 9 resources.)

A Comprehensive Approach to Hazing Prevention in Higher Education Settings. Working Paper by Linda Langford( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Higher Education Center's 2002 publication "Preventing Violence and Promoting Safety in Higher Education Settings: Overview of a Comprehensive Approach," outlines a framework for addressing a broad array of violence issues in college and university communities. This document outlines specific considerations in applying this approach to the issue of hazing. Campuses are diverse settings, and there is no "model" hazing prevention initiative that will work at every institution. Accordingly, the Center recommends a set of "principles" and a "process" that campus and community members can use to collaborate on issues like hazing. This approach allows planning groups to create a hazing initiative that is tailored to their campus circumstances and to the needs of specific groups that may experience hazing. Based on the Center's framework, the following key actions are recommended for creating a comprehensive hazing initiative: (1) Identify and address multiple contributing factors; (2) Conduct a "local" analysis; (3) Include prevention, early intervention, and response components; (4) Use multiple, coordinated, and sustained strategies; (5) Make sure programs, policies, and services are coordinated and synergistic; (6) Ensure that each component of the initiative has clearly defined goals and objectives that are informed by data and research; and (7) Build Collaborations
