About the CCC

Our Mission

The CCC works to promote responsible decision-making about alcohol and other drug use.

We identify factors supporting high-risk and illegal drinking; analyze data; and implement proven and promising strategies to create positive change. Together, we seek to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of our communities.


Our History

University and community leaders, with support from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, came together to form the Campus and Community Coalition to Reduce High-Risk Drinking (CCC) in 2005. Since its inception, students' risky drinking is down by as much as 26% and the comprehensive strategic plan which drives the efforts is garnering national recognition.
