AlcoholEdu Team receives Prevention Excellence Award

The University’s AlcoholEdu Team has received the 2006 Prevention Excellence Award from Outside the Classroom for the team’s “ability to develop, implement and sustain comprehensive alcohol prevention and education, clearly demonstrating your commitment to creating a healthier, safer campus.”

The AlcoholEdu Team is made up of members from the Greek Life Office, the Office of Student Activities, the Office of New Student Orientation, the College of Arts & Sciences and Student Health Services.

“AlcoholEdu is one example of a WUSTL community effort aimed at decreasing alcohol misuse on our campus,” said Alan Glass, M.D., director of Student Health Services. “Many individuals worked collaboratively to make this happen. This award is recognition of that effective collaboration.”

The honor will be presented next week at the annual meeting of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators in Washington, D.C.
