AZIHE Network 2010-2013 Strategic Plan
The purpose of the AZIHE Network Strategic Plan is to provide member institutions with broad overall alcohol and other drug (AOD) and violence prevention-related activities to reach desired outcomes. The activities and outcomes are based on The Network’s Standards and the Environmental Management Model. This model provides a social and ecological framework for prevention which recognizes that health and safety-related behaviors are influenced not only by individual factors but by group processes, institutional factors, community factors and public policy. By aligning themselves with the AZIHE Network, member institutions agree to address heavy/high-risk AOD use and related negative consequences and violence among youth by targeting five environmental facets:
The intent of the Strategic Plan is to provide a unified direction for IHEs in Arizona to work toward reducing heavy/high-risk AOD use and related negative consequences and violence among students on their individual campuses. It is recognized and accepted that Network member institutions may differ in their levels of attainment in reaching these goals. It is also recognized and accepted that Network member institutions may utilize differing methods of achieving these goals depending on the unique needs and resources characteristic of their campuses.
