TIPS (Training for Intervention ProcedureS) Training Program

TIPS for University

Acquire the skills to keep your campus community safe!

“Students are in the best position to address drinking behaviors among their peers. They are close to the situation and understand the culture on their campuses. TIPS develops students’ social skills and gives specific information for detecting when friends have had too much to drink or are getting into trouble with alcohol. Students learn specific strategies and skills for intervening in alcohol-related situations that may develop on campus. Unique in its approach, TIPS brings together administrators, faculty and students to create responsible campus atmospheres.

TIPS for the University builds on students’ concerns for the safety of their peers. Students learn decision-making skills that help guide their behavior and are more likely to consider the consequences of their actions. In addition, students gain more confidence to intervene in difficult alcohol-related situations to prevent alcohol-related incidents on campus such as property damage, injury, and drunk driving. Finally, TIPS for the University provides liability protection for both the university and its student organizations.” – TIPS for University

TIPS for the University acknowledges that whether or not students choose to drink, they are likely to find themselves in situations where alcohol is being consumed. TIPS is a nationally certified resumé experience that provides students with the confidence, skills and strategies to prevent alcohol-related problems.
