Project Description

The project examines college and non-college based university students' alcohol use in NSW and Victoria to identify barriers and opportunities for harm minimisation. Unlike previous studies, it focuses on the combination of the social dynamics of students' alcohol use, their understandings of harm minimisation, what they themselves do to achieve it, and the approaches adopted by university colleges and state health authorities to reduce the fallout from students' heavy drinking. The project will produce a new evidence base and innovative theoretical framework for better understanding alcohol-related harm minimisation among university students and developing more effective strategies to advance it.
