UofL’s Building Resilience in Campus Community (BRICC) Coalition’s efforts to increase resilience and reduce high-risk drinking target individual, group, organization and community levels.
In our evidence-based model, campus and community partners operationalize a strategic plan. Major gifts from Beam Suntory and Brown-Forman have enabled us to hire a coordinator, create the BRICC Coalition infra-structure, build capacity, pilot strategies, and lay the groundwork to measure outcomes.
Recent outcomes supported by the BRICC Coalition include the development of the Voice of Reason initiative and manual © ULRF, Inc., 2016, AlcoholEdu-Haven population level prevention, and passage of a medical amnesty law in Kentucky, AlcoholEdu-Haven population level prevention, and development of the Voice of Reason Initiative. Medical Amnesty grants limited immunity for people who choose to call for help in an emergency situation. BRICC also serves as a lead advocate in the implementation and integration of AlcoholEdu-Haven online alcohol and sexual violence prevention for every incoming first-time freshmen to help them make well- informed decisions as they transition to UofL.
We envision a resilient campus and community free from high-risk drinking and substance use.
To provide leadership in advancing policies, programs, resources and experiences that increase resilience and reduce high risk drinking and substance use in the campus and community.
