In alcohol prevention efforts, work is often focused on reducing high-risk drinking among high-risk drinking population. For years, this was true at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. But were our efforts always effective for all student populations? After surveying our students and finding that students of color are some of our lowest-risk drinkers, we wanted to investigate the impact our alcohol culture has on students of color. To that end, we created the Color of Drinking survey, and used it along with an analysis of social media to gain better perspective on this question. This session will examine the intersection of alcohol prevention and social justice and strategies implemented with campus partners to create a more inclusive environment.
