I. Welcome and Introductions
a. Joan Masters welcomed the group together and led the group in several
exercises to meet members of the new six campuses. Following the exercise,
attendees introduced themselves.
b. Announcement by Amy Kiger from UCM that their office has received two new
grants including a 2 year Department of Education grant and a Department of
Justice grant regarding underage drinking and binge drinking and military
(given the close proximity of Warrensburg to Whiteman Airforce Base)
II. Cultural Competence in Prevention presentation
a. A presentation was done by Chuck Daughtery, Director of ACT Missouri, on
Cultural Competence. CEU credit is offered for this presentation.
b. Culture, inclusion, diversity and competence definitions were elaborated on by
Chuck. 3 to 5 minutes were given to members to review and discuss the
definitions. Feedback from groups: Commuter students, International
students, Alumni population, parent population and the athletic population
are untapped prevention members that could be a part of your coalition.
Sexual orientation is often left out of the discussion and not at the prevention
discussion table, but needs to be.
c. Discussed dominant US values: Individualism, activity & work, material
comfort, science, achievement and success, freedom, group superiority, equal
opportunity, progress, practicality and efficiency. An interactive group activity,
which one of these ten values encourages substance abuse in our country?
Chuck asked the group to discuss within. Then asked what values influence
substance abuse among groups on their individual campuses?
At the same time as this presentation, members of law enforcement and campus conduct
attended a networking session with Mike McBride in a separate location.
III. Update from the National Task Force report: Kristy Wanner
a. Kristy gave a power point presentation on the findings of the
accomplishments of the gambling prevention initiatives she has presented at
conferences. She highlighted some of the research numbers. Problems,
financial health, MCHBS, frequency, behavior activities and sports waging
data were given. Also some important numbers on poker, sports betting,
lottery, casino games and stock market were shown. Alcohol use among
gamblers and negative consequences data was given also. Gambling and
mental health numbers were given.
b. Where can we direct students on where to go for resources? Parents seem to
be the most important place students get information on gambling. Students
are the most targeted so prevention on college campuses is very important.
She gave ideas on collaboration with other prevention efforts or events that
are going on. National Task Force report is finally out yeah!!!!!!!!!! It has been
disseminated nationally from all vehicles: print, television and radio. 10
recommendations from the NRCG were given out. Kristy encouraged the
group to order prevention items and brochures.
IV. Updates: U.S. Ed – Team Training & MCHBS
a. Joan gave the update on the Ed grant. She explained the Team Training to the
group that will take place November 16-17. No registration fee for the new
members. No limit on how many can attend. Thanked the volunteers that
have stepped up, but made a plea for presenters.
b. MCHBS Survey: Staff should have a version of the survey ready to review
within a month. Mike and Joan gave an update on the MCBHS survey. A new
aspect to the survey is an expanded student veterans piece thanks to the
work of Bill Smith at UMKC.
V. Checking In
a. Great feedback on the DSDS cards. People want bumper stickers though.
Roberta provided feedback about moving the dates of DSDS to wrap up
before Thanksgiving. With Homecoming, mid-terms, etc the timing of DSDS is
not right to get a lot of student assistance with the program.
b. Feedback from MS&T on Ask, Listen and Refer. Posters are doing well. It’s
been received well on campus. Dave Brown mentioned that he has used a 27
minute DVD on suicide prevention with promotion materials from ALR.
c. Mike gave an update on SPF/SIG. More funding is on the way to keep the
programs going. EUDL grant is in the works. We were the only submitter so
funding looks good. Mike explained EUDL to the group. START is done and
IRB is approved now and the site is working better since programmer is
switched. It’s optional for campuses.
d. Meeting of the Minds dates for 2010 is April 8-10th.
e. Gambling and CHEERS orders are ready for pick up.
f. Amy Kiger shared information about the Hospitality Industry Responsibility
Conference coming up in Springfield.
VI. Next Meeting: December 4th, 2009
