2017-2018 ICAN Mini Grants
Supporting Health Choices
Goal of the “Supporting Healthy Choices among Trine University students” project is to collaborate with different departments within the Trine University community to address, reduce, and prevent high risk drinking among Trine University students. In addition, this proposed project will increase students’ awareness of the risks associated with heavy alcohol use, change misperceptions, and increase the number of students making better choices regarding their alcohol and/or other drug use.
Oakland City University Identifying the Signs of Student Drug Abuse
To intensify Oakland City University’s focus and identify the signs of student drug abuse the campus task force will incorporate a Multi-Component Education Focused Program (MCEFP) to promote alcohol and drug abuse awareness. This year’s grant will primarily focus on the negative effects of prescription and illegal drugs greatly affecting the geographic region of Southwestern Indiana.
Purdue University Purdue Parties Smart
Prevention project involves the socio-ecological model to foster behavior change including individual strategies to change knowledge, attitude and behavior and institutional strategies such as providing information for faculty/staff/administrators to incorporate into their interactions with students.
Manchester University Alcohol Free Programming & Education
Goal of this initiative is to reduce the overall reported use of substances and minimize potential consequences of such use through ongoing late-night, substance-free programming and education. The success of this initiative will be evaluated by the number of students attending the events and demonstrating a decrease in the reported use of substances on the 2018 ICSUS.
