National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, "Accumulating research shows that campus–community partnerships can be effective. With the involvement of campus administrators, local law enforcement, merchants, residents, and local leaders, these partnerships address college drinking through the application and consistent enforcement of community policies. Effective campus–community partnership strategies can include:
- Publicizing and enforcing underage-drinking and zero-tolerance laws for drivers under age 21
- Establishing partnerships between the college and the local residential and business communities to reduce access to alcohol and to address violations
- Increasing the price of alcohol, such as the elimination of low-cost drink specials in bars near college campuses, because research shows that when alcohol is more expensive people drink less and have fewer alcohol-related problems."
