Purpose & Goals

Southeast Missouri State University is committed to student learning and success.  In order to create a safe, supportive and healthy social environment where all students can achieve their academic and personal goals, we will establish a health initiative aimed at reducing “at risk drinking” and its associated negative consequences by changing cultural norms, policies, and practices within the Southeast Missouri State University community.  The goals of the coalition are listed below.

  • To create safe, supportive and healthy environments within the campus and community.

  • To identify the norms, attitudes, and issues associated with high risk drinking at Southeast. 

  • To identify, discuss and design interventions to positively impact the norms, attitudes, policies and practices that affect high risk drinking.

  • To implement media advocacy campaigns designed to educate and eventually change high-risk behaviors of students.

  • To reduce high risk drinking and improve the social and academic environments for Southeast students.
