Mission Statement

The President's Roundtable on Alcohol and Drugs is a campus and community coalition designed to enhance the quality of life for all members of the greater Kutztown community. The Roundtable is committed to fostering social and environmental change through campus community partnerships aimed at cultivating mutual respect, promoting educational initiatives, and implementing cooperative actions that will result in healthy and responsible decision-making regarding the legal use of alcohol and other drugs by the constituent members of our communities.

 

Kutztown University collaborates with the Council on Chemical Abuse to implement grant!

The President’s Roundtable is a campus and community coalition established in 1998.  It is committed to fostering social and environmental change through campus-community partnerships that will result in healthy and responsible decision-making regarding the legal use of alcohol and other drugs. In collaboration with the Council on Chemical Abuse, Kutztown University received the Pennsylvania Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant.  The goals of the grant are:  to reduce the onset and prevent the progression of substance abuse, including underage drinking; to reduce the problems associated with substance abuse; and to build and enhance infrastructure at the state and local levels. Three priorities for grant funding are: 1) To prevent (reduce) the early initiation and regular use of alcohol in middle and high schools; 2) to prevent (reduce) drinking and driving among persons ages 16 through 21; and 3) to reduce the illegal use and misuse of alcohol among persons ages 18 through 21. The focus of the work is toward enhancing evidence-based programs such as Brief Alcohol Screening & Intervention of College Students (BASICS), campus AUDIT screenings to identify "at-risk" students, and the AlcoholEdu web-based educational program.  A PASSHE AOD grant (2009-2010)provided funding for a social norms marketing campaign based upon CORE surveys, established a standardized BASICS Program for first year resident students, and implemented system-wide strategies for creating systemic change.
