The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility will attend the US Department of Education’s National Meeting on Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention in Higher Education. For over 10 years, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility has assisted colleges and universities with innovative strategies to promote alcohol education on campus. Its commitment to developing a comprehensive approach that includes research- based educational materials for students, parents, faculty, administrators and other members of the campus community while supporting enforcement of the legal drinking age provides a solid foundation to our efforts to curb underage and binge drinking among college students.

Most recently, we partnered with the American Advertising Federation to sponsor their 2009 National Students Advertising Competition. Through this national competition, students will contribute to solving the problem of dangerous alcohol overconsumption among college students by presenting new approaches to communicate with their peers about this important issue.

The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility programs highlighted at this year’s conference include: Alcohol 101 Plus™ Online, Promising Practices: Campus Alcohol Strategies, Back on Trac, and the Parents You’re Not Done Yet brochures.
