Campus Coalition on Alcohol Abuse
The Campus Coalition on Alcohol Abuse (CCAA) is comprised of students, faculty, and staff from James Madison University acting as a catalyst in identifying community needs, selecting key alcohol prevention initiatives, and mobilizing community support. It serves as a subcommittee of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Strong Families/Great Youth Coalition with a specific focus on campus issues and the impact campus has on the greater community.
The CCAA strives to do the following:
- Identify problem areas and seek solutions through environmental management strategies
- Provide helpful and factual alcohol information to business and student communities
- Provide funding for alcohol-free events and programs that impact illegal and high-risk drinking
Through an application process, the CCAA offers financial support to campus and community organizations and agencies who share in our commitment to develop and maintain safe and healthy campus/community environments.
- JMU department application for CCAA funding of non-alcoholic events and programs
- Non-JMU-affiliated application for CCAA funding of non-alcoholic events and programs
The following are examples of recently funded alcohol-free events and programs designed to heighten community awareness, while diminishing the impact of alcohol abuse within our community:
- Social activities that positively engage youth/students
- Peer education initiatives
- Training opportunities for students and staff
- Efforts designed to build awareness and increase access to community resources
