Social marketing strategies for campus prevention of alcohol and other drug problems by Robert Zimmerman( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document sets out one segment of a comprehensive approach intended to assist institutions of higher education in developing and carrying out alcohol abuse and other drug prevention programs. Social marketing is described as a tool of environmental management, that seeks to produce a specified behavior in a target audience. Intended for a broad campus audience, the brochure examines the development of social marketing and uses 10 campus examples to illustrate ways to popularize positive ideas and attitudes, and encourage favorable changes in social values and individual behavior. Commercial marketing principles, summed up as the four Ps: product, price, place, and promotion, are translated into equivalent elements for use in a social marketing campaign. The report emphasizes the importance of appropriate research and evaluation and recommends that research be focused on four areas: (1) the problem the campaign will address; (2) the audience; (3) the messages; and (4) the communication channels to be used. Since data gathered before a campaign are essential for measuring its impact afterward, it is suggested that the requirements for an evaluation be considered during the planning stage. Appended are a list of resources and estimated costs of a social marketing program. (Contains 11 endnotes.) (Bf)
Alcohol and other drug prevention : a bulletin for fraternity and sorority advisors by Tammy Enos( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bulletin describes alcohol and other drug (aod) prevention programs specifically designed or customized for fraternities and sororities (Greeks). Approaches to aod prevention include: (1) peer education programs to help students help themselves; (2) comprehensive health and psychosocial assistance; (3) retreats, to encourage student involvement and collaborative problem-solving; (4) networking to share resources and information and build coalitions to facilitate change; (5) national programs such as gamma (Greeks Advocating the Mature Management of Alcohol), the Greek arm of bacchus (Boost Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the health of University Students); Our Chapter, Our Choice; and On Campus Talking About Alcohol; and (6) substance-free fraternities. Also discussed are the strengths of several national programs and how they complement each other and other campus programs; common barriers to aod prevention programming for Greeks on campus; and specific ways to overcome those barriers. Advisors to fraternities and sororities are urged to solidify prevention programs and then conduct formal program evaluations in order to direct time and money to those that are effective. (Mah)

Secondary effects of binge drinking on college campuses by Henry Wechsler( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The College Alcohol Study (1993) surveyed nearly 18,000 undergraduate students at 140 colleges concerning their experience of either "binge drinking" or "secondary binge effects" (harm experienced as a result of binge drinking by others). The survey found that 44 percent of respondents were binge drinkers (50 percent of men and 39 percent of women). Across the colleges, binge drinkers ranged from 1 to 70 percent of students on campus. On high drinking-level campuses, 87 percent of the non-binge drinkers living on campus experienced negative consequences of excessive drinking by other students (such as having studying or sleep interrupted, having property damaged, or experiencing unwanted sexual advances). On low drinking-level campuses, 62 percent reported experiencing such secondary effects of binge drinking. Non-binge drinking women living on campuses with high levels of binge drinking had almost twice the risk of experiencing unwanted sexual advances as their counterparts at lower drinking-level schools. Among 10 recommendations for college administrators are: (1) using student media to highlight the problem; (2) building alliances with the community; (3) restricting conditions under which alcohol is allowed on campus; (4) encouraging athletic directors to help promote mature behavior; and (5) appointing a health and safety advocacy committee.

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes ways in which higher education institutions have responded to the requirements of the 1989 amendments to the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act, Part 86, Regulations, and is intended to help institutions improve current programs and avoid overlooking requirements that might result in noncompliance. Chapter 1 presents the certification requirements that higher education institutions must meet under the regulations and notes the consequences of failure to comply; it also provides information on meeting legal requirements not covered in the Part 86 regulations. Chapter 2 outlines the required content of the written policy (standards of conduct, legal sanctions, health risks, drug and alcohol programs, disciplinary sanctions) and offers several formats that can be used to present the required information. Chapter 3 suggests low-cost methods for distributing policies to students and employees; and chapter 4 discusses the preparation and content of biennial reviews, providing some recent examples. Seven appendixes provide information on the Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention; a compliance checklist; a table listing federal penalties for illegal trafficking and possession of controlled substances; a table listing health risks associated with use of illicit drugs and alcohol; copies of university policy statements on drugs and alcohol; and a table listing effects of drug dependency.

Experiences in effective prevention : the U.S. Department of Education's Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Models on College Campuses Grants by William DeJong( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to ongoing concern about unacceptable levels of aod (alcohol and other drug) use on campuses, in 1998 Congress authorized the Department of Education to identify and promote effective prevention through a model grants program. In 1999, osdfs (Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools) launched an important component of the Department's efforts to advance best practices, the Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Models on College Campuses Grants. The program's goal is to move the field toward more effective practice. Applying institutions are required to describe an innovative program or policy that was integrated into a comprehensive aod abuse prevention effort, to provide evidence that the initiative was effective in reducing AOD-related problems, and to propose a work plan for encouraging replication of their efforts. Each grantee institution receives funding to maintain, improve, and further evaluate its efforts and to disseminate information to other campuses where the program might be replicated. A total of 22 institutions received awards under this initiative in 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2004. Congress did not fund the program in 2002 or 2003. Additional institutions received awards in 2005 and 2006; findings from those two cohorts are not yet fully known. One grant was awarded in fiscal year 2007. Each campus has publicized its work in the usual ways--presenting at conferences, sponsoring workshops, and distributing brochures and other materials. The agenda for OSDFS's annual National Meeting on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention in Higher Education includes a session for the newest grantees to present on their activities. The primary purpose of this publication is to examine these model programs in order to discover broader lessons for aod prevention practitioners and thereby move the field toward more effective prevention. The authors aim is not merely to describe the model programs but also to explore the general principles and processes by which the grantees successfully implemented their programs, policies, and interventions. Appendices include: (1) Site Visit Interview Protocol; and (2) Characteristics of 22 Institutions of Higher Education With U.S. Department of Education Model Programs (1999-2004). Individual chapters contain references. A list of resources is included. (Contains 4 figures.)
