The Alcohol Prevention Coalition
In 2001, when Outside The Classroom first launched
AlcoholEdu, its online alcohol prevention program, higher education was in need of an effective tool for changing student behavior. Almost a decade later, the field has evolved to recognize that education is the cornerstone to a broader, comprehensive prevention strategy. Yet building that larger strategy—deciding which policies and programs to put in place, developing a strategic plan, securing engagement at both the campus and community levels—is far from easy. The Alcohol Prevention Coalition was created to provide colleges and universities with an unmatched resource for developing a “state-of-the-art” prevention program.
