Campus Workgroup on the Reduction of Alcohol-Related Problems

Underage and high-risk alcohol use among college students is a complex problem requiring a comprehensive approach. The Alcohol and Other Drug Workgroup (AOD) consists of leaders across campus that are responsible for key departments which have an impact on student alcohol use. Workgroup members will develop a plan to reduce illegal and high-risk alcohol use among Northeast college students by addressing both individual and environmental factors. The AOD workgroup utilizes a subcommittee structure to address three main areas:

  • Developing policy and increasing the consistency of enforcement efforts to create greater risk-awareness associated with high-risk consumption
  • Increasing and promoting the availability of alcohol-free programming both on and off Northeast campus
  • Coordinating educational efforts, and increasing the effectiveness of intervention and treatment services

In order to accomplish the goals of the Alcohol and Drug Workgroup, it is crucial to actively involve members of the Northeast College community and members of the local community surrounding Northeast in prevention efforts.  Anyone interested in joining the AOD workgroup please contact Maureen Baker at maureen@northeast.edu.
