January 18 – January 20, 2018
Portland, OR

The 2018 NASPA Alcohol, Other Drug, and Campus Violence Prevention Conference will provide student affairs practitioners with the knowledge and skills to effectively address collegiate alcohol and drug abuse prevention through comprehensive and integrative approaches. This conference is part of the NASPA Strategies Conferences, which include the 2018 NASPA Mental Health Conference, 2018 NASPA Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Conference, and the 2018 NASPA Well-Being and Health Promotion Leadership Conference.

About

 Student affairs administrators know the effects of alcohol and other drug abuse on student learning, persistence and completion can be staggering. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) has specifically identified college attending youth and young adults as a target population for substance abuse prevention efforts. Preventing high-risk alcohol use and substance abuse directly contributes to institution of higher education goals associated with academic success.

Learning Objectives

Attend this conference to:

  • Evaluate the scope of alcohol and other drug abuse problems on campus and better understand current trends and issues in alcohol and other drug prevention;
  • Identify best practices for campus policies surrounding alcohol and other drugs;
  • Explore replicable and adaptable campus evidence-based policies, programs, and practices;
  • Identify sources and repositories for identifying evidence-based risk factors, protective factors, and practices;
  • Evaluate the capacity to implement prevention strategies on campus;
  • Understand cultural competency and its importance in evidence-based prevention efforts; and
  • Apply sustainability into all efforts in the spectrum of prevention.
