Collectively, student affairs professionals represent thousands of voices; working together we can make a powerful impression with policymakers on behalf of our students and our profession. Engaging with our representative democracy is essential to maintaining the health and function of our nation’s government, which is why NASPA invites you to take part in the National Student Affairs Day of Action on March 12, 2019. No matter your position, title, or area of expertise, as a student affairs professional there are a myriad of ways you can – and should – engage in public policy conversations for the benefit of you, your students, and your institution. Won’t you join #SAadvocates around the country on #NSADA19 to share your expertise and insight with policymakers?
The Coalition of Colorado Campus Alcohol and Drug Educators (CADE), a project managed by NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, provides training, technical assistance, and fiscal resources to help adapt current evidence-based programs in substance abuse prevention. Amendment 64 passed in Colorado in November 2012, allowing adults over the age of 21 to possess and purchase up to one ounce of cannabis through retail outlets throughout the state. As the first state to legalize, we wanted to share some lessons we learned along the way. In our last blog, NASPA explored the current landscape of collegiate cannabis use in America. In this edition, Laurie Jevons, Assistant Director, Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Initiatives, will highlight essential information for student affairs professionals, as well as best prevention strategies.
