Partnerships


Research shows environmental changes reduce high-risk drinking, but achieving change requires collaboration.

One of the Center for Health Promotion's key partnerships is with the Campus and Community Coalition to Reduce High-Risk Drinking (CCC).

University and community leaders, with support from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, came together to form the CCC in 2004.

The CCC is a diverse group focusing on reviewing campus policy and community laws; increasing consistency of enforcement; limiting alcohol availability; expanding alcohol-free options; creating a health-promoting campus environment; and restricting student-targeted alcohol marketing on- and off-campus.
