In June 2011, Bucknell joined 31 other colleges and universities from across the country to form the National College Health Improvement Project (NCHIP) Learning Collaborative on High-Risk Drinking.

The unprecedented initiative is using comprehensive evaluation and measurement techniques to identify and implement the most effective ways to tackle high risk drinking, a persistent problem that affects nearly 4 out of 10 college students in America.

Bucknell recognizes the importance of alcohol education and reducing high-risk drinking. That is why Bucknell has committed to making the collaborative effort a permanent part of campus.
