This document outlines an evidence-based public health model that uses a typology of programs and policies for preventing and treating campus-based alcohol-related concerns. 

It is used to categorize current and/or anticipated efforts and to inform strategic planning of multilevel interventions.

This model suggests that in order to sustain prevention efforts, it is necessary to act across multiple levels of the model at the same time (community, institution, individual, group, public policy).

  • (Ann Arbor) Community: Prevention strategies at this level impact the social and physical environment. This includes relationships among organizations, institutins and informational netowrks within defined boundaries, including the build environment (e.g., parks), merchange and neighborhood associations, communitiy leaders, buisinesses, and transportation. Efforts may focus on city initiatives, public schools and workplace settings. 
  • Institution: Initiatives at the institutional level highlight both formal and informal efforts at the University of Michigan. This can include campus climate, trainings and policy.
  • Individual: Prevention strategies at the individual level promote attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that reduce harm and promote well-being. Specific approaches may include conflict resolution and life skills training
  • (Campus) Groups: Prevention strategies at the group level continue to promote attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that reduce harm and promote well-being with a population and/or specific group within the University of Michigan.
  • Public policy: This area focuses on the impact of local, state, national and global laws and policies.
