AWARE


The A-Team: The Link with the Community

AWARE coordinates the A-Team, which is a campus-community coalition that works to develop, recommend, and assess best practices in policy, prevention, intervention and enforcement to reduce underage drinking and excessive alcohol use. Some of the projects the A-Team has been involved with include:

  • Alcohol policy recommendations to Laramie City Council

  • Working with local judges to curb underage drinking

  • UW alcohol policy recommendations

  • Consultation and support for campus initiatives and programs

  • Increasing student involvement in alcohol discussions and decisions

  • Improving communication between students, departments, and agencies on alcohol issues

  • TIPS Training, a responsible beverage service training program for campus departments and community businesses

  • Local and State policy and program assistance


A-Team Strategic Plan

Five goals were identified to help increase alcohol related health and safety issues in the Laramie community. The goals are to decrease high risk drinking among UW students; reduce secondary negative effects of alcohol abuse among UW students; increase students' knowledge and awareness regarding safe, legal and responsible use of alcohol; develop, update, recommend, and consistently enforce alcohol policies; and to collect, compile, and analyze data on alcohol use among students to assist with needs assessment, strategic planning, and evaluation.


A-Team typically meets on the first Friday of the month during the academic year from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  If you are interested in collaborating with the A-Team or have any questions, please e-mail aware@uwyo.edu or call at 766-2187.
