Higher Education: An Informational Newsletter Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service (AODES)

The major purpose of the K-State Alcohol and Other Drug Education Service newsletter called Higher Education is to provide accurate, timely information on the physical effects and social issues related to alcohol and other drug use. Please keep in mind that research on these matters continues daily and is subject to change.

Higher Education is produced with the intention of trying to keep campus consumers educated and informed on alcohol and other drug topics, not to diagnose or treat illness. For personal alcohol and other drug problems, please consult an alcohol/drug counselor, physician or psychologist.

Volume #1 of the Higher Education Newsletter was produced during the spring semester of 1993. Since that time, it has been produced during the spring, summer and fall semesters each year. In 1996 Higher Education was nationally cited as a program of excellence by Promising Practices: Campus Alcohol Strategies for America's Colleges and Universities.

The Newsletters are stored as pdf file and can be viewed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have this program, you can download it.
