World Wide Web Sites for Campus Alcohol Policy Formation, Education and Research


Syre, Thomas R., Pesa, Jacqueline A., Cockley, David E., College Student Journal


There are four important world wide web (www) sites for alcohol policy formation, education and research. These sites provide a myriad of materials and services to college administrators, faculty, staff and students interested in combating alcohol use and abuse on campuses today. These sites include a U.S. government agency, a private non-profit organization, a higher education news agency and a mid-west research university. The four www sites are discussed.

Background

Cyberspace provides instant access to relevant and timely campus alcohol information. There is an important government organization, a private non-profit organization, a higher education news agency and a mid-west research university which are on the www providing information about campus alcohol policy formation, education and research. These sites are particularly relevant given the recent problems (ex. alcohol overdoses, arrests, riots, and vandalism) associated with alcohol use and abuse both on and around college campuses during the 1997-1998 academic year.

Four www sites are presented. These sites provide immediate downloadable information. They also provide a means for requesting materials, which can be sent by the United States postal service. Materials include publications, databases, press releases, research programs, research findings, conference announcements, and other resources. Also, a number of books, white papers, and articles are available. The organizations and materials are listed.
