Campus-Wide Work

UCM Partners in Prevention

Composed of leaders from across campus, the Coalition meets 6-8 times per year.

  • To promote an environment that supports UCM students in making safer and lower-risk choices regarding alcohol and other drugs, interpersonal relationships, and mental health, each of which have a significant impact on the recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of our students.
  • To review, evaluate and enhance health promotion and harm reduction efforts across the UCM campus through best-practice, data-supported prevention approaches.
  • To annually create a comprehensive, evidence-based strategic prevention plan that includes goals and action steps, and builds institution-wide collaboration in addressing alcohol and other drug issues, interpersonal violence, and mental health.
  • To oversee the university’s development and implementation of a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.
  • To ensure the distribution of an annual notification to all students, faculty, and staff to include (1) standards of conduct; (2) possible legal sanctions and penalties; (3) statements of the health risks associated with alcohol and other drug (AOD) abuse; (4) the university’s AOD programs available to students, staff, and faculty; and (5) disciplinary sanctions for violations of the standards of conduct. 
  • To conduct a review of UCM’s AOD program to determine effectiveness and the consistency of sanction enforcement, in order to identify and implement any necessary changes, including the production of the Biennial Review.

Biennial Review

The 1989 amendments to the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA), as articulated in the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Part 86 (the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations) require that all institutes of higher education closely examine their prevention program on a biennial basis.

The current biennial review documents UCM’s prevention efforts related to alcohol and other drug use, and is available upon request from Amy Kiger, Director of Campus Community Health; email or call 660-543-4772.

Campus Alcohol Board

UCM's Campus Alcohol Board (CAB) is a multi-disciplinary subcommittee of the UCM Partners in Prevention Coalition, appointed by the president, comprised of various members of the university community, and coordinated by Campus Community Health. The CAB meets as required or called upon to advise the president and university community on issues related to alcohol education programs, policy implementation and enforcement, community relations, and other topics as may arise related to the university’s alcohol policy and programs.

To obtain more information or clarification regarding the development of procedures governing the sale, service, possession or consumption of alcohol in and on university facilities and grounds, please contact Amy Kiger, Director of Campus Community Health, at



Our Mission: In collaboration with campus and community partners, we reduce the impact of physical, mental, and behavioral health issues on student success, through the delivery of quality primary care services and the implementation of evidence-informed health promotion strategies.
