How can I add my college’s alcohol policy to your database?
If your college’s alcohol policy is not in our database, please send a link to your online alcohol policy to our webmaster. If the policy is part of a student handbook, we prefer a direct link to the policy; however, you may send a direct link to the policy or a link to the handbook as a whole.

We will not link to Web sites that promote the use of alcohol or commercial Web sites.
How can I get involved with your program?
The purpose of our Web site is to share information with the public about research completed by our panel of scientists in coordination with the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), a Federal Government agency.
Although we do not represent a national organization you can join, we can offer you resources to help with your goal of changing the culture of drinking on college campuses. Please feel free to visit our Resources page to learn about existing groups you may be able to join.

If you have specific questions or would like to conduct an interview with someone involved in the College Drinking Prevention initiative, please e-mail the webmaster to inquire about availability.
