AlcoholEdu is the most widely used alcohol prevention program in higher education. Assisting more than 500 campuses in all 50 states, it has quickly become the standard. Campuses that implement AlcoholEdu typically do so for all their incoming first-year students as part of a primary, population-level prevention effort. It remains the only program specifically designed for ALL students - whether they are frequent heavy drinkers, light to moderate drinkers, or abstainers.
Whether they are colleges, Greek organizations, high schools, or courts, AlcoholEdu partners are leading the way. If you'd like to join them,
