Media Kits - A Matter of Degree Advocacy Initiative (AMOD)

Case Histories in Reducing High-Risk Drinking Among College Students - Universities and community groups can work together to change local public policies to reduce alcohol problems. This book presents the case histories of how four campus-community coalitions in Delaware, Iowa, Nebraska and Vermont worked in 2000-02 through media advocacy, strategic planning and community organizing to help change policies and the community environments that affect student high-risk drinking.
