abstract
The University of Wyoming’s “A-Team” in collaboration with the Albany County Coalition to Prevent Substance Abuse is completing an Environmental Scan during 2009. The purpose of this scan is to develop a picture of the UW campus and the surrounding community’s environment regarding alcohol use and problems. This scan will provide information to decision makers on how best to prevent underage drinking and their associated consequences. Volunteers will complete the scan in pairs traveling around Laramie and through the UW campus while answering each question about the campus culture provided on the five page environmental scan tool. Major areas on this data collection tool include campus life, alcohol issues, alcohol availability and promotion, media environment, student living environments, neighboring environments, and drinking environments. Neighborhoods around campus, parties and events, and campus bookstores are also included. Gathering this information may require driving and walking across campus, through campus neighborhoods, and through downtown Laramie. It may also require pairs to go into UW buildings or local businesses. The scan will be completed by a large number of volunteer pairs between March 2009 and October 2009. It will be piloted in March and April. Pairs will also write down their impressions of specific environments in the notebook provided. Each pair will be given a disposable camera in order to take pictures of things in the environment that stand out as particularly relevant to alcohol use. The results of this study will present on two pairs’ data collection. The specific research question is: “How does campus culture and the surrounding environment affect promotion and drinking among college students?”
