Frostburg State University’s AlcoholEdu Team was recently chosen as a recipient of the 2006 Prevention Excellence Award by Outside the Classroom: Online Education for Life, developers of AlcoholEdu for College.
Headed by Dr. Spencer Deakin, director of counseling; Dr. Tom Bowling, associate vice president for student and educational services; and Don Swogger, alcohol and drug education coordinator, FSU’s prevention program was selected for its outstanding contribution to alcohol education on campus.
According to Brandon Busteed, founder and CEO of Outside the Classroom, FSU’s ability to develop, implement and sustain comprehensive alcohol prevention and education has brought it national recognition as a school committed to creating a healthier, safer campus. Deakin and his colleagues work to provide students at FSU with an environment conducive to learning and personal development.
An independent review panel of nationally recognized scholars reviewed the applications and assessed each one according to five criteria: implementation practices, communication, evaluation, programmatic linkages and organizational linkages.
This award program was sponsored by Outside the Classroom to honor institutions of higher education, as well as Greek organizations, that have most significantly influenced the quality of student life through their alcohol prevention efforts.
