On-Campus Strategies

In this section of the Guide, we describe policies and interventions that can be implemented on-campus. To help college administrators decide which policies are best to implement on their campuses, we have sorted policies into three sections based on evidence of effectiveness: evidence-based, promising but little or mixed evidence of effectiveness, and ineffective if used in isolation.

Summary of ON-CAMPUS Strategies

  • Restrict alcohol use at specific placers or events
  • Ban alcohol sales as specific places and events

Promising but Little or Mixed Evidence of Effectiveness

  • Restrict alcohol marketing
  • Prohibit open beverages

Ineffective If Used In Isolation
