Campus safety efforts can't operate effectively in silos. A strategic, data-driven approach to alcohol misuse and sexual assault prevention drives student success.
"If institutions truly want to stop alcohol misuse and sexual assault-and reap the rewards of a healthy, thriving community-they need a robust, coordinated plan. The stakes are just too high for anything less."
The Campus Prevention Network's Framework for Comprehensive Prevention outlines the core components of a social impact strategy that drives results.
Leading institutions adopt these research-backed pillars to create a safer, more successful college experience - where their campus and community can thrive.
Programming is how alcohol and sexual assault prevention messaging is designed and delivered.
Effective programs are based on theory and data, and utilize known best practices to drive targeted
and ongoing engagement across the student lifecycle.
Policies communicate institutional values and establish community expectations.
Campus policies should be clear and accessible, consistently communicated and enforced,
and aligned with state and federal compliance requirements.
Critical processes translate prevention resources into action that aligns with campus
needs and strengths. This key pillar includes goal-setting and strategic planning, data
collection and assessment, and collaboration with key partners.
Institutionalization is the foundation of a high-impact prevention strategy, representing
outward support from senior leaders, appropriate budget and staffing, and campus-wide commitment to
safety, well-being, and inclusion.
Safer, more inclusive campuses positively impact brand, student success, engagement, and retention.
"Preventable harms and high-risk behaviors impact students inside and outside the classroom. These issues undermine the mission and business of higher education, and require significant investment and deliberate focus to achieve their transformative potential."
"Safer and more inclusive campuses foster higher performing students, providing an experience and set of skills that make them successful in their time on campus and beyond. Every dollar put towards prevention has the potential for significant returns."
