How To Reduce High-Risk College Drinking: Use Proven Strategies, Fill Research Gaps

Developing This Report: The Panel and the Process

In 1998, the National Advisory Council to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) established the Task Force on College Drinking to contribute to the development of a national plan for college drinking research at NIAAA. The Task Force created two working panels: the Panel on Contexts and Consequences and the Panel on Prevention and Treatment. College and university presidents, students, and experts on college drinking research participated in both panels. Each panel commissioned a series of background papers that reviewed the literature in their areas of focus. A number of those papers are being published in a supplement to the Journal of Studies on Alcohol. A full list of the authors and papers commissioned by the Panel on Prevention and Treatment appears in the References section of this report.

The Task Force has also issued a report, A Call to Action: Changing the Culture of Drinking at U.S. Colleges, that synthesizes the two panels’ documents and their recommendations. Other products include a series of booklets for college presidents, peer educators, parents, high school guidance counselors, and community leaders, highlighting information of special importance to them, and a handbook for college administrators on implementing effective prevention programs on campus.
