d. Southeast-Their campus will be focusing on Greek population because of
the increase across the board in the statistics. Marijuana use is on the
increase and their number of violations have tripled.
e. Rockhurst- Their work will be centered around 4 main things: Social
Norming campaign, Cup campaign replacing all paper cups with plastic
cups with social norming messages, Bystander approach and CHEERS.
f. UCM-Amy Kiger noted that they are in a transition year. They are looking
to expand the coalition outside the city limits to include more top level
officials on the coalition. The topics have stayed the same, but they have
added other drug use to our issues to examine. They also want to look at
marijuana, prescription drug use and hookah.
g. MSSU- Kelly noted that they are trying to address the binge drinking on
our campus. They are working on developing a bystander intervention
program in the Greek community. They are also trying to build a better
relationship with our campus and local police to aid in cracking down on
some of the incidents. Also trying to engage the academic side of campus
and to educate them on the prevention. “Save your face” is another thing
they are looking at on campus to show students what they look like when
using alcohol, profanity and such.
h. MU- Kim Dude shared that their campus will be looking at the high levels
of alcohol women are consuming
V. Suicide Prevention Update: Sarah Brandt and Kelly Sheline shared with the
group about the ALR website new look. The goal is to make the ALR website
a one stop for suicide information on your campus. Sarah went through the
navigation of the site for the group. Don’t Erase Your Future is a new
campaign introduced today. MSSU is already on board and we hope to gain
more. A comment from Southeast was that Facebook is a great tool that
would lead people to your site. Eric will design anything for no to low cost.
There was a lot of discussion on graphic content and policy to allow the ALR
logo on schools sites. Judy gave an overview of what they do to put links to
ALR and other PIP programs on their school sites. We can put upcoming
events on our site from your school.
a. MSSU wants to know how to market ALR on your campus? Judy
commented on that. She said they got Residential Life to get all the RA’s
to take it during training, Greek Coordinators and leadership groups.
Renee Getz shared also. Evangel shared also that they have been
getting request for face to face training which has been beneficial.
Columbia College hands out cards that include information on where to
take students and it also has the ALR site link. They are also going to
Faculty/Staff meetings to talk about it. American Federation of Suicide
Prevention will send you a DVD on suicide about students and it’s free.
b. Implementing Drive Safe, Drive Smart
i. You can promote DS/DS at anytime of the year on your campus.
We want to help you implement it throughout the year. What are
simple ways we can promote DS/DS and using a designated driver
CHEERS program on your campus? Time was given to brainstorm
5 ideas that can promote DS/DS/CHEERS on your campus.
ii. Ideas: President declares a day or week as “no texting while
driving”. A "Can I call you back I'm driving" campaign was
mentioned. Evangel does a DS/DS fair that brings students in for a
mocktail party, with a squad car, lights and cones. They do field
sobriety checks and give a way incentives and pamphlets to
students. UMKC is doing a spread the word campaign to get the
word out about the effects of alcohol and driving. UCM had good
response with their EPIC videos. Renee Parks suggested a Honk if
you see someone texting campaign. The free drink campaign
worked well on MU’s campus. They handed out free soda in a can
koozie to students. The Movie 7 lbs – to have a campaign centered
around the theme of that movie. Our PEERS at MU decided to sign
a behavior contract and to add to wear their seatbelts while driving
and no texting while driving. Jenny Rabas is sending out the article
about the danger of banning texting while driving, now that kids are
moving the phone lower to their lap as oppose to holding it higher
to see the road while driving. Jessica stated she has money to
order specific items for your campus, as long as it has the
DS/DS/CHEERS initiative in mind.
c. MCHBS Update: Mike McBride and Liz Gebhardt:
i. Mike gave an update on the status of the survey. Everything
should be up and running by Monday October 3rd. The deadline to
submit questions is October 19th. The deadline for IRB submission
is November 19th to your IRB. From Lindsay Borden’s
presentation last meeting the question was asked: What protective
behavior strategy that has the best result? Mike covered the
question in a PowerPoint. The PowerPoint will be available to PIP
members. What strategies have the strongest correlations with
consequences? Liz did a preliminary analysis of the arrest record
that included DUI arrest and liquor violations. She did a month by
month analysis. It was put in a calendar and a handout of the
calendar was given to members. The Clery annual report is
something you can get data from also.
