As a faculty member, your first concern is naturally academics - as it should be, students, on the other hand, are juggling their studies with their physical lives, their spiritual lives, their social lives, and their interpersonal lives. Sometimes, students priorities may seem quite different from yours, and that may very well be true in some cases. But most often, they are simply struggling along to do well in school, make friends, and fit in. And that's when some of them might start abusing alcohol, either from time to time, or more frequently.
Is it your job to get involved with alcohol education, prevention, or intervention efforts on campus? That's for you to decide. We hope that, if you do get involved, this special report has given you some specific ideas on how you can do so in ways that complement your role as a faculty member. Whatever you decide, know that the alcohol problems many campuses are facing aren't likely to go away on their own- and that they will continue to significantly impact all students, whether they're harming themselves through their own alcohol abuse or are being negatively affected by the binge drinking of others. In either case you, your colleagues, your students, and your campus, risk paying a considerable price.
