The Campus and Community Coalition to Reduce High-Risk Drinking is an active partnership of campus and community stakeholders that takes a data-driven, comprehensive approach to combating the many problems related to excessive drinking among students. Using environmental management strategies, the coalition is working to change the environment in which individuals and groups live and make decisions about their health. The CCC’s successful approach has helped decrease dangerous drinking among UMass students by as much as 27% since 2005.
