  • New Data on Mandated Students in Reducing Alcohol-Related ProblemsThose students who received a brief motivational interview reported fewer alcohol-related problemsParticipation Rates Remain LowStudents who need interventions are most least likely to participate—but they are mostly the one’s who pose problems on campusA way to increase participation in screening within university health centers through new technologyThrough these ways, comparative norms will demonstrate a change in drinking practices
