Overview:
It’s no secret. Underage drinking and alcohol abuse is a major problem at institutions of higher education. What can be more difficult to look at and address is when the inappropriate behavior of intoxicated students bleeds into the surrounding community, creating not only a relations issue, but also a safety concern off campus. A college does not stand in isolation from the larger community in which it resides. Building a successful and effective campus-community coalition is one important strategy in dealing with the problems commonly associated with the misuse of alcohol in college.

Created in 1990 by the University at Albany and the City of Albany, the “Committee On University & Community Relations” has proven its effectiveness in improving town-gown relations, making life safer off campus for college students, developing and carrying out alcohol abuse prevention programs, and improving the quality of life in neighborhoods off campus where college students reside. This diverse committee is composed of representatives from students and professional staff at the University at Albany and six other local colleges, the Albany Police and Fire Departments, the Albany Common Council, neighborhood associations, community and religious leaders, tavern owners, landowners, the New York State Division of Alcohol Beverage Control, and the Empire State Restaurant & Tavern Association. This webinar will describe how this campus-community collaboration began, its growth and sustainability over the years both in terms of its programs and its membership, how to get local tavern owners and business leaders involved, the “Four E” process used to address problems identified as part of an overall environmental management approach, positive indicators that this multi-faceted approach is working, and keys to the success of a campus-community coalition.
