This study presents data from 58 colleges and universities about their alcohol control policies. The study presents detailed commentary and opinions of deans and assistant dean of students, directors of student life and student services, directors of student counseling centers and the college legal staff on what colleges should be doing to control the use of alcohol by students on and in close proximity to campus. The report helps its readers to answer questions such as: just how great a problem is alcohol on campus? Is the problem better or worse depending on the type of college, its size or public/private status? How much faith do campus officials have in their alcohol control policies? Who determines the policies? How are they evaluated? What kinds of quantitative benchmarks are used? What are the punitive elements of these policies? How many campuses have expelled students for alcohol abuse in the past three years? What role does parental notification play in policy? Who on campus is trained to spot alcohol abuse? What kind of training do they receive? How do colleges encourage compliance from sororities and fraternities? How do they control institutional risk and liability? Just a few of the report’s many findings are that: · Only 28.57% of colleges sampled said that alcohol was not really a problem or not usually a problem while 44.44% said that it was sometimes a problem and about 27% said that it was often a problem or definitely a problem. · Research universities were the most likely to sell alcohol through some venue on campus: 60% of them in the sample did so. Community colleges were the least likely, and only 10% of them did so. · 37.5% of colleges enrolling less than 1,000 had expelled a student for alcohol abuse within the past three years. · Parental notification was used virtually equally by public and private colleges though it was most prevalent among colleges charging more than $32,000 annually in tuition; nearly 69% of these colleges used parental notification for students believed to have drinking problems or who violated school policies on alcohol use.
