IS THE NETWORK?
Network is a national organization that addresses the issues of alcohol,
other drugs, and violence in order to promote healthy campus environments
through self-regulatory initiatives, information dissemination, and
technical assistance. The
Network serves as a liaison between the U.S. Department of Education and
member institutions. Members
encourage and enhance prevention in higher education through a commitment
to shared standards for policy development, educational strategies,
enforcement, evaluation, and community collaboration.
Almost 1,600 colleges
and universities belong to the Network.
The Network maintains a website at http://www.thenetwork.ws
Check it to determine if your school is a member and for helpful
information. Dr. Spencer
Deakin, Director of Counseling at
Network can help you with financial support for the fall semester through
$600 mini grants. The grants
can assist you in implementing your campus substance abuse prevention
initiatives. The project
should support environmental management strategies or use one of the
evidence based strategies on your campus.
To apply, write a one page proposal identifying your project
initiative and your budget request. The
money must be used by the end of the fall term.
You can submit your request to Spencer Deakin, Network Regional
Director at Sdeakin@frostburg.edu
or call (301-687-4234) to discuss your project idea.
