The "We Agree" Campaign
The "We Agree" Campaign has been implemented by schools in Lincoln, Norfolk, and Wayne in an effort to address the problem of house parties. Students agree with city officials and residents that wild parties hurt neighborhoods; and even though college students are not responsible for a ll of these parties, they want to assist in making things better for the community as a whole. The campaign is also an opportunity to share information about law enforcement citations and how to keep student parties from getting out of control.

Website of the campus-community coalition to reduce high-risk drinking at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and in the City of Lincoln that reduced binge drinking from 62% in 1997 to 47% in 2003. Some of the things that worked there may work for your campus-community, other things may not work for you. A good place to spark ideas and get your campus-community coalition thinking.
