The Challenges: Whether or not students choose to drink, TiPS® University training recognizes that at some point in their college careers, they will face situations where alcohol is being consumed. They may face scenarios involving alcohol abuse, underage drinking or drunk driving, and incidents that can lead to property damage, alcohol liability, and human tragedy. Young people need strategies for creating safe, responsible and socially enjoyable campus environments.
The Solution: Students are in the best position to address drinking behaviors among peers. They are close to the situation and understand the culture on their campuses. TiPS® University training develops students' social skills and gives specific information for detecting when friends have had too much to drink or are getting into trouble with alcohol. Students learn specific strategies and skills for intervening in alcohol-related situations that may develop on campus. Unique in its approach, TiPS® University training brings together administrators, faculty and students to create responsible campus atmospheres.
Additional Benefits: TiPS® University training builds on students' concerns for the safety of their peers. Students learn decision-making skills that help guide their behavior and are more likely to consider the consequences of their actions. In addition, students gain more confidence to intervene in difficult alcohol-related situations to prevent alcohol-related incidents on campus such as property damage, injury, and drunk driving. Finally, TiPS® University training provides liability protection for both the university and its student organizations.
