Annotation: This report describes the origins of National Collegiate Drug Awareness Week 1988 and presents 17 abstracts of presentations at a February 1988 conference that served as the kickoff event for the awareness week.
Abstract: The week was initiated by the Inter-Association Task Force on Alcohol and Other Substance Issues and had the support of the United States Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services. Speakers advocated the subtle integration of drug and alcoholism prevention programming into the college curriculum, examined university alcohol policies, described students' own preventive efforts, and explored the issue of drug testing and university liability for student accidents resulting from students' own reckless behavior. Other speakers focused on changing attitudes toward drug use on campus, creative approaches to drug education, program evaluation, and the problem of alcohol consumption among college students. List of standards for the Network to Promote Drug-Free Colleges and Universities and list of members of planning group for the network are included.
