Successful accomplishment of the Network’s goals requires partnering and working collaboratively with a number of agencies, institutions, departments and individuals in the state of Arizona who also have an investment in the health and safety of our college-aged youth. We invite you to become a partner and supporter of the AZIHE Network by doing the following:
- Become familiar with college alcohol and other drug use and violence issues and learn about AOD use and violence behaviors among Arizona college students, including the healthy behaviors that characterize the majority of youth.
- Support and promote campus policy and enforcement that discourages student substance abuse and violence.
- Support campus programs and community venues that increase student access to substance-free social and volunteer activities.
- Include and involve the AZIHE Network in statewide substance abuse and violence prevention/intervention planning.
- Support local, state and national legislation to reduce heavy/high-risk drinking, other drug use and violence among youth.
- Support fund development for college substance abuse and violence prevention and intervention activities.
