The mission of PartySafe@Cal is to reduce harm associated with drinking and parties around the campus area. Most people underestimate the nature and range of adverse consequences of drinking, in part because data about harm has traditionally been collected about individuals' drinking and individuals' problems.
Over the past two decades, comprehensive reports released by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism's (NIAAA) Task Force on College Drinking have provided statistics and data that better convey the magnitude of college drinking problems and their consequences. At Cal we are fortunate to have site specific survey research data which parallels the national data on college drinking and its consequences. This data gives us a baseline for measuring the impact of our efforts to reduce high risk drinking and associated problems around the campus.
All of us play roles which can increase or reduce the likelihood of harm associated with drinking and parties - students, staff, merchants, parents, faculty, and neighbors. Let's use the data available to inform our goals, strategies, and activities so that we achieve the changes we seek changes that will add up to an enhanced quality of life for all who live, study, work and recreate in the Cal campus and community.
