Alcohol & Other Drugs

For decades, colleges and universities have faced challenges surrounding high risk drinking and substance abuse among students. Empowering students to make healthy and informed choices about substance use is an important challenge that schools face, and one that research supports. Research indicates that there are large numbers of students who are entering college as part of a healthy majority who seek to create positive, healthy communities and refrain from unhealthy behaviors surrounding substance use, and it is important that institutions of higher education recognize this as the norm and tailor their efforts accordingly.
