Education

Health Promotion offers educational programming concerning tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs for any interested campus group or class. Should a group wish to provide its own programming, we offer lesson plans as well. Binge drinking and alcohol poisoning are among the most popular topics. Staff from SouthLight, Incorporated’s court services coordinate with us to deliver the 90-96 Drug Education program.

Mandatory Alcohol Education
The university requires all incoming students under age 21 to complete AlcoholEdu for First Year Students. Most students who violate university policies and/or regulations pertaining to alcohol must complete AlcoholEdu for Sanctions.

Social Norms Campaign
Although alcohol consumption at NC State is significant, the rate of consumption is not as high as most people think. Many NC State students consume only 0-4 alcoholic beverages when they drink socially! Research indicates that when students more accurately perceive the actual drinking rates, alcohol use decreases among members of the student population. We have implemented a social norms campaign to reduce misperception in the campus community.

NC State CAMPUS Community Coalition
The CAMPUS Community Coalition addresses both on- and off-campus students’ alcohol and other drug-related issues. Anyone interested may attend. The coalition meets the first Monday of the month at noon in the Student Health Center, Room 2301.

Screening and Other Programming
Health Promotion offers individualized alcohol and other drug use screening services. Contact Dr. Chris Austin with your questions about programming.
