The President's Roundtable on Alcohol & Other Drugs is a campus and community coalition that was established in 1998. Efforts are aimed toward developing strategies that include environmental approaches (such as more vigorous enforcement of zero tolerance laws, other drinking and driving laws, and strategies to reduce the availability of alcohol) as well as initiatives that target individual drinkers (implementation of routine alcohol screening, counseling and treatment).
During the academic year, the President's Roundtable collaborates with campus and community constituents to sponsor or coordinate numerous events. The activities are designed to promote healthy lifestyle behavior through educational programs and alcoholfree events. Some annual events include: screenings during National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week and National Alcohol Screening Day; awareness events and health promotional activities for the Great American Smoke-Out and Kick-Butts Day; hosting a local high school football game; Open Alternative Nights (alcohol-free, late night events) and participation in the campus health fair.
