UC's Alcohol & Drug Coalition

In an effort to explore the factors associated with alcohol and drug misuse and to reduce the risk for negative outcomes associated with high-risk alcohol and drug use among University of Cincinnati students, the Campus-Community Alcohol and Other Drug Coalition was established by the Division of Student Affairs. The Coalition was charged with addressing high-risk alcohol and drug use among students by Vice President of Student Affairs Debra Merchant and the Student Affairs Leadership Team.

The coalition created several subcommittees to explore issues on- and around campus who developed reports and recommendations that were compiled and prioritized to develop a final report that guides the coalition's work.
