The Bucknell Collaborative on High-Risk Drinking
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 American.
Though the collaborative is an 18 month project, 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.
The Bucknell Collaborative on High-Risk Drinking is committed to the reduction of high risk drinking through education, policy evaluation,assessment, and other initiatives in order to ensure a healthy Bucknell student experience and a rich residential environment. The Collaborative will continue to represent Bucknell in the NCHIP Learning Collaborative, but will remain active and engaged on Bucknell's campus after the completion of NCHIP in January 2013.
