EVERYTHING TO GAIN: How Higher Education Leadership Can Confront Campus Substance Use and Enable Student Success  

 

This one-day symposium is designed specifically for college trustees and administrators to explore the latest and most significant research around college campus alcohol and drug use, its profound impact on student outcomes, and strategies to promote a healthy and productive academic environment.

 

The event is hosted by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) and the Mary Christie Foundation, with support from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation. Due to the generosity of the Mary Christie and Hazelden Betty Ford Foundations, registration is complimentary.

 

Everything to Gain draws on the research and findings from Addressing College Drinking and Drug Use, the acclaimed guide for trustees and administrators authored by ACTA earlier this year in partnership with the University of Maryland School of Public Health.
