Prevention efforts should engage college and university presidents and other top administrators. These academic leaders serve as significant catalysts in successful efforts on campus and in the larger community.


College and university presidents can improve the quality and safety of students’ college experiences by:

  • Making alcohol and other drug prevention a priority
  • Allocating sufficient resources to prevention efforts
  • Supporting the development and enforcement of policies, and
  • Fostering campus and community coalitions

Many presidents have committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for their students, championing alcohol and other drug prevention efforts on their campus and in the surrounding communities. These presidents have joined the Center for College Health and Safety’s Presidents Leadership Group (PLG), a body of higher education presidents and chancellors who have made student substance abuse prevention a priority on their campuses, and serve as prevention spokespersons, change agents, and models for other presidents.
