What is the Network?

Begun in 1987, the Network is a voluntary membership organization whose member institutions agree to work toward a set of standards aimed at reducing alcohol and other drug problems at colleges and universities. It now has over 1,600 members nationwide.  Through the work of its volunteers, the Network is committed to supporting colleges and universities in the United States and its territories as they conduct effective alcohol and other drug abuse prevention on our college campuses.  The work of our volunteers enables the Network to

  1. Provide a two way communication conduit between institutions and agencies and organizations
  2. Encourage best practices and research in the field of behavioral health in higher education
  3. Provide technical assistance and the facilitation of training for institutions of higher education
  4. Identify emerging issues

The Network applauds its member institutions for the work they are doing and the progress they are making in the field of prevention.  We pledge to continue to support these institutions and to serve as the voice of the field.
