Proposal Title

Teaching and Learning about Alcohol in the First-Year Seminar: Student and Faculty Perceptions

Proposal Abstract

Eighty percent of college students use alcohol with 25 percent reporting subsequent negative academic effects. Thus the First-Year Seminar course represents an ideal opportunity for the teaching and learning of alcohol abuse awareness and prevention. This presentation will discuss a study of both First-Year Seminar students and faculty questioned on their perceived needs, relevance, knowledge, and goals for alcohol education in this course, as well as outcomes and effectiveness. This session will aim to disseminate these exploratory research findings regarding the overlap of student and faculty goals and achievement for alcohol education, as a contribution to the knowledge base for practical improvement. This session will be interactive, with time built in for participant comments, contributions, & questions. Additionally, discussion will be initiated for future scholarship in this domain. Participants will improve their knowledge regarding student and faculty perceptions related to alcohol education.
