Introduction
Introduction Arizona Through a Statewide Tri-University Consortium

The Arizona Institutions of Higher Education Substance Abuse Prevention Consortium was granted funding in 1999 by the U.S. Department of Education to establish a statewide strategic plan for preventing alcohol abuse among 99,600 students enrolled at Arizona’s three largest state universities. Using a logic model format, the Consortium developed, implemented and evaluated a long-term strategic plan that incorporated environmental management strategies.
