SWO FACTOID OF THE MONTH
SPOTLIGHT ON PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Alcohol Education Outreach to Faculty and Staff
With input from Purdue's Campus Improvement Team, a presentation was created for faculty and academic advisors to educate them about alcohol prevention efforts on campus. The presentation has three objectives: to share data/incidences, describe campus initiatives, and discuss how to address alcohol with students. So far, five academic units have contacted Tammy Loew to schedule presentations. The presentation takes approximately 30 minutes. For more information, or to request a presentation, contact Tammy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After Purdue became a smoke-free campus in July 2010, we asked students who smoke cigarettes in the Spring of 2011 how it affected their tobacco use. 13% of student smokers reported that they smoked fewer cigarettes because of the policy change, and 8.8% of students reported that they quit smoking because of the new policy. For more information about tobacco visit the CDC webpage and/or display our social smoking bulletin board kit.
