A Call to Action: Recommendations for Addressing Excessive College Drinking

To provide practical assistance to colleges and universities, the Task Force on College Drinking developed a series of recommendations on integrating research-based principles and practices in alcohol program planning. The Task Force also prepared recommendations specifically for researchers and NIAAA on the direction of future research and areas for potential collaboration with colleges and universities. All recommendations are based on scientific evidence, reflect a consensus among Task Force members, and represent the most objective guidance currently available on preventing risky drinking by college students. As such, the Task Force believes that these recommendations should serve as the basis for all interventions supported by national, state, and local organizations and implemented by colleges and communities.
