Institutions Mark National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week

October 19, 2012

 

​College and university students will join forces with their peers and campus professionals on more than 800 campuses across the country to promote National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (NCAAW), Oct. 21-27, 2012.

During NCAAW, students can participate in a variety of awareness and educational events, all designed by campus leaders and prevention partners to reinforce personal responsibility and respect for state laws and policies when it comes to the consumption of alcohol.

NCAAW is promoted by the Coalition of Higher Education Associations for Substance Abuse Prevention (CoHEASAP). This coalition of 20 higher education associations, of which ACE is a member, is dedicated to promoting education, prevention, research, networking and national initiatives to help eliminate substance abuse and the problems it causes on-campus.

"NCAAW is a focused event for campuses to address alcohol abuse and impaired driving prevention," said Janet Cox, convener of CoHEASAP and president/CEO of The BACCHUS Network™, a national nonprofit organization that supports student health and safety through peer education.

NCAAW activities vary from campus to campus, but typically include presentations and social events that promote responsibility and healthy, safe decisions about alcohol. For additional information, visit CoHEASAP, www.collegesubstanceabuseprevention.org
