CSU Chico continues to build a uniquely comprehensive, campus-wide alcohol and drug education, prevention and intervention program. With our university’s President, Dr. Paul Zingg, and Vice President for Student Affairs, Drew Calandrella, we have expanded collaboration across departments and disciplines. CSU Chico is now a member of the Leadership Team of the National College Health Improvement Program (NCHIP) based at Dartmouth University. Chico State is the second university on the west coast after Stanford University to be a part of this prestigious Learning Collaborative which specifically addresses college high-risk drinking as a public health problem. As part of NCHIP, Chico State is working collaboratively with other universities and experts from the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice to create population health solutions and solve the problems of high-risk drinking. We look forward to sharing our outcomes with all of the CSU campuses.
