Engaging Multiple Constituencies

A successful prevention effort ideally should have the commitment and support of a variety of stakeholders on campus, in the community, and in the region and state. As the goal of prevention efforts is to change the overall environment that contributes to high-risk drinking and other drug use on college campuses, members from each element of that environment should be on board. Involving a wide range of participants and supporters in the prevention effort creates a diversity of perspectives and approaches. These contribute to a more integrated and comprehensive prevention effort.

In the Community

Engaging diverse community partners in prevention efforts is essential for shaping the campus and community environment in which students make decisions about alcohol and other drug use.

In the State

Representatives from higher education associations, alcohol beverage control boards, state prevention associations, and local government can assist with prevention efforts and help garner support for prevention policies.

On Campus

Prevention programs should involve as many constituencies from each sector of campus life as possible and feasible.
