Engaging Community Colleges in Prevention

Thursday, February 6, 2020
2:45 PM
4:00 PM
Chesapeake 4-6


Texans Standing Tall will present ideas for engaging community colleges in prevention and how to get buy-in from the right stakeholders. Additionally, we will look at the health and safety issues that surround substance misuse by community college students. Community colleges differ in many ways to their traditional counterparts, but have very similar needs and responses when it comes to reducing underage drinking and the risky behaviors associated with alcohol misuse. This session will address these issues and ways in which administrators, students and the community can tackle the problems specific to the community college setting.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

1) Engage community colleges in prevention programs.

2) Address the prevention needs of community colleges with a focus on first year students.

3) Identify those college campuses that need help in making their policies more effective and assist them in building strong substance prevention strategies customized to their campuses.
