Discussed “Stater” article on binge drinking and advertisements. The very small student study (N=30) claimed that ads don’t lead to binge drinking.

  • “The Yellow Dress” was funded in part or in full by the Nebraska Child Abuse Prevention Fund Board, WSC Counseling Center, Catholic Newman Center, Notre Dame Sisters of Omaha, and Haven House.

Be Responsible About Drinking (BRAD) Program

  • 3/21/03- 65 people attended the performance and it was also reported on in the “Stater.” Wallet cards were distributed at the program describing what action to take if a person is suspected to experiencing alcohol poisoning.
  • Funded by: NCAA, SAB, Counseling Center, Athletic Department and Student Health.

Informational/contact flyer for TRUST Coalition - Vic Reynolds’ Graphic Design II class project. We discussed the selections and voted. We decided to combine two different designs. Kathy will follow-up with Reynolds.


Updates from Workgroups/Committees

  • Policy & Enforcement Report:
    • Safe Ride Program: Committee is working on dispelling myths in the community about the purpose of the shuttle. The purpose is to reduce drunk driving by providing a safe ride home. The intent of the service is NOT to enable irresponsible drinking.
