This article focuses on a report prepared by the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) Task Force on College Drinking, which reviewed epidemiological and intervention research on college drinking and issued recommendations for prevention strategies. The NIAAA Task Force commissioned several review papers on various aspects of drinking among college students. The reviews found little evidence to support the effectiveness of purely educational or awareness programs. Newer approaches combining provision of information with other components, such as motivational enhancement,await evaluation and may be found to be more successful.
