StFX study finds Atlantic Canadian universities’ alcohol policies “fall short” of best practices


A new study conducted by St Francis Xavier University Associate Professor Dr Kara Thompson has found that universities in Atlantic Canada are falling short when it comes to campus alcohol policies. The Campus Alcohol Policy Project evaluated the alcohol policies of 12 Atlantic Canadian universities against the current best practices in 10 policy domains, such as Availability and Access, Harm Reduction, and Leadership and Surveillance. The average campus alcohol policy scored only 33% out of 100%, with individual institutions ranging between 15% and 49%. Thompson told that certain changes to each campus policy could improve their respective scores significantly.
