Postsecondary Education Partnership – Alcohol Harms (PEP-AH) supports Canada-wide efforts to reduce the harms related to alcohol consumption on campus. The members of PEP-AH — representatives from postsecondary institutions across Canada — come together to combine their knowledge and expertise in a forum within which implementation efforts and results will be shared, discussed and reported.
The Postsecondary Education Partnership at work
In partnership with CCSA, PEP-AH has developed a
socio-ecological, evidence-based framework that includes five strategic areas with specific recommended initiatives and measurement indicators. The framework has been the basis of a community effort to deal with alcohol harms to youth in Sherbrook, Quebec. Details can be found in the report, report in short and infographic.
PEP-AH members are encouraged to work together on research projects that will inform community responses to the harms associated with excessive drinking at postsecondary institutions. The group will produce:
A report identifying common issues among students who drink in excess, and including policy options and recommendations;
Case studies and templates that inform a comprehensive campus and community approach to the development of a municipal alcohol policy; and
A forum for fostering the exchange of knowledge and experience among its member institutions and partners.
Be a part of it!
PEP-AH is actively inviting institutions to join and establish their own campus team of students, staff and faculty to develop an institutional implementation and measurement plan based on the framework and report back on their strategies to reduce alcohol-related harm on Canadian campuses.
